Has any one else experienced this? I am pretty much 30 weeks by midwifes dates, she is away till the end of March so I am with the back up atm (I will call if this persists).
There is no reason for this, bubs has been moving well this morning. I did have dull cramp like pains on and off the past few days but back up said likely to be ligamint pains, and a few times when I move it has felt like pulled ligamints, so could this be why or could this be the start of pre-term labour (fingers crossed its not, I know he is cute, but not ready to have him yet!)

I would be calling your back up... I had a discharge stained with blood when I had my show 2 hours before I went into labour.
It would probably be a good idea to get checked just to make sure that you are not going into labour.

Ah shot! That's not what I want it to be!
Off to the phone I go.

Don't panic- it may be nothing... but best to get it checked

Have you had sex recently? Could be your cervix is irritated?

If you haven't had sex I was thinking it sounds like a show too. Defiantely get it checked out, I have read that some people can lose their plug earlier in pregnancy and it just regenerates but if you were going to go into labour they'd have a chance to stop it. Also coupled with the cramps you need to get it seen too.
Good luck, let us know how you get on.

Just get yourself checked out just to be sure (and I mean a physical check up, not over the phone). It could be nothing, but why risk it...

JBM@B How did you go? Fingers crossed its nothing too serious

No recent sex much to DP's disappointment.
It seems it was the plug shipping some of the family out so nothing to worry about. Pain lasted less than 1 hour bubs has moved lots since and the spotting has also come to a halt. A good scare to say the least, I have semi packed my bag now and got some essentials sorted today so if it happens again the bag comes along too.

I to am 30 weeks pg and this happened to me a week ago. I went straight to the hospital and only got out yesterday. Apparently i have a small clot on the top of my placenta which is why the spotting started (it hasn't stopped either. Bubby is still moving and happy but now a high risk pregnancy. I would advise that you ask for a scan to rule everything out. It can happen without a reason.
Hope all stays well for you.

I am on aspirin as I am high risk (was before I got BFP).
But will be going straight there if any more starts.
