calling the Dr today - more spotting
 
So last night I noticed another "streak" of blood in my CM and again this morning.

It's so odd, it's just a streak, thin as thread, nothing on my panty liner etc. It happened twice before my last appt and everything was fine so I'm sure it's still fine, however, it's starting to bother me a bit.

I'm going to call the Dr. office when they open this morning to see what they say and ask if I can possibly get in this week to see a Dr.

I haven't had any cramping, however, I have pains, I'm assuming they are the round ligament pains but who knows for sure.

I'm sure your right and everything is fine but I agree that calling the dr is best if only for your sanity. Let us know what they say. didn't the dr say that your cervix bleeds easily? I'm guessing that is what causing but I would get checked out just to be safe.

Yes, she did say that and that's what I keep telling myself but it has done it 3 days in a row and I haven't had sex, etc, nothing to irritate my cervix so I don't know why else it would bleed???

One thing I did notice, when the streaking does happen it's usually after I've been constipated. I don't know really if it's just a coincidence of if the straining from being constipated can somehow irritate my cervix...? I wouldn't think so but who knows, I guess weirder things have happened.

it could be from the straining caused by the constipation. i'm so crazy that I'm always terrified when I have to strain, thinking I'm going to start pushing the baby out. I know crazy but your mind is a terrible thing during PAL.

A streak of blood would indicate a small broken vessel. I would guess it is just one of the swollen vessels on your cervix. Even a normal bowel movement can cause enough pressure to break one of those. Hoping that is all it is!

I think the same think Melissa!!!!! Especially after having my daughter, the nurse had me do some practice pushes before the Dr. got there and she's like "just pretend your having a BM!" I'm like OMG what?!!!!! So now when I go to the bathroom I think about that LOL

leanne - this makes me feel a bit better, i always kinda forget about the broken vessels, hopefully that's what it was. I guess I need to get better at remembering to take my stool softeners so I don't strain so much.

Fingers crossed and lots of luck. I think some women just have sensitive cervixes and a vessel can bleed for no cause.

I never knew about the blood vessel thing. It makes sense. I bet that's all it was since you mentioned you were pushing from constipation. Keeping you in my thoughts.

So sorry Cort! But it does sound like it's from the straining from constipation. I've heard of that happening to people with a sensitive cervix. Good luck tomorrow! :heart:

Good luck!! It's probably just from the straining, but I hate how stressful spotting is. :hug:
