37 weeks pregnant. I had slight bleeding. Is it worrisome?

Hi, I am 37 weeks pregnant. Today I had slight bleeding, it was about 8-10 drops. I had the ultrasound done. AFI was 12 and EFW was 2870 gms.

I have lower abdomen and thighs pain, it is more than the usual. Is my bleeding worrisome? What should I do?

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Bleeding at this time with normal placentation on scan can be either bloody show which is early sign of labor onset with pains or can be abruption which can be worrisome. Check your blood pressure and urine albumin. Visit your doctor and take the advice if she feels that you should be delivered or need observation.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.

    • Hello Dear,

      Mild discharge at this time is mostly normal. But if it is moderate to excessive with pain abdomen or itching below, it can be infection. As you had an episode of bleeding also, I would suggest you to visit your doctor once and take her opinion. As a treating doctor I would like to do your vaginal examination.
