I was away with my dd at a Girl Scout encamporee all weekend, and let's just say I was anything but regular while there. After two days of not having a bm, I tried to go today and after straining, I noticed some blood with mucous when I wiped. I called my dh in and he was like "I don't see anything" but he suggested I call the midwife, just in case. I did, and she said it didn't sound bad, since I wasn't cramping and it was only when I wiped. I have a tiny bit of brown (old) blood now, but no more red. The midwive said it sounded like I was straining and because the cervix has so much more blood flow right now, it is easy to pop a blood vessel or otherwise irritate my cervix. I am curious if anyone else has had this? I have my first u/s in a week, and I am dying to know all is ok. I am glad that she wasn't concerned, but I can't stop worrying.
