38 weeks tomorrow–I had my cervix checked at my OB appointment on Tuesday early afternoon. I spotted that day (a few mucusy bits- sorry- but I suspect I’ve been losing my mucus plug a little at a time) and during the day yesterday. Last night I was getting really crampy and actually woke up from the crampy feelings during the night. Sometimes it was because I was having a BH contraction and other times I just felt like I was getting my period. I thought I stopped spotting and then I just went to the bathroom and I am spotting again. It is brownish/reddish, but not bright. Not a ton. Just enough to stain my underwear. Anyone have spotting and cramping last days after their check?

I don’t have an answer, but I turn 38 weeks tomorrow, too! 🙂 I spotted very lightly for two days after my exam last Friday, but it stopped by Monday. For the past 3 or 4 days, I have also been experiencing menstrual like cramps low in my abdomen. I called my doctor and she said it is due to the baby dropping and placing additional weight onto the uterine muscles. The spotting could be due to the exam, because often, these exams can irritate the cervix. But, I don’t have any clue why it would last a few days. Wish I could be of more help!

Well I decided to call the doctor and he said that yes it was likely still due to the exam. 🙁 You are my due date twin! You should check in with us on the March boards.
