    Just wondered if anyone else has had this?

    Sunday night I had a bath, half hour after coming out of the bath I went to the toilet and there was a bit of pinkish blood on the tissue, I put a pad on just in case & kept checking every 30 mins. After 2 hours there was a bit more pinkish blood on the tissue (nothing on pad) on both occasions it was a very small amount so diddnt want to panic too much at this point.

    Anyway yesturday I called the midwife just to double check I had nothing to worry about & she said that as long as bleeding diddnt continue everything seems fine, my mucus plug has started to come away & again she said thats fine as it can still be weeks but again to keep a close eye on things.

    Since calling my midwife yesturday, from about 2.30pm I had been getting period pains (at times quite strong but not strong enough to take parecetamol) I said to my OH i thought it might be the start? but we will see how it goes e.t.c I had a couple of contractions/branston hicks but the timing was random.

    All last night I was tossing & turning in bed from the uncomfortable feeling down below, at this point it really does feel as though im about to start my period & my OH said I was moaning all night due to the discomfort. My lady bits also hurt a bit. This morning I wake up and again on & off still to this point I feel uncomfortable due to period pain, ive had no more discharge, no other symptoms but i just cant get my head round what the problem could be.

    If anyone has any idea please post your comments.

    Thanks
