    Smile just need advice

    Hi im jo,,i have been bleeding on and off all day,,not enough to worry
    My mw says my baby is engaged and my cervix is soft,,
    im 38 weeks with baby number 6...
    I just wanted to know if there was anyway i could strengthen the pains im having...
    Id rather things were happening quicker cos i have other kids to look after and usually id leave nature to take its course but the bleeding even though the mw isnt worried,,i am worried...
    Im not taking castor oil as it just makes me poop lol..
    im drinking raspberry leaf tea..as i did with all my pregnancys...also im trying the proper accupressure points,,,
    Basically i need to speed this up cos i have 5 other kids to look after lol..
    babys growth is fine,,,and the pregnancy has been sooooo easy..
    Any suggestions greatly recieved..
    But please do not tell me to wait for nature to take its course as i said the blood is worrying me and the pain is getting slightly annoying..
    I need to have this baby,,so i can get on with daily things...
    without worrying if the bleeding is a real problem,
    Thanks joxxxxxx

    You need to get that bleeding looked at.
    Call the hospital you are booked into and talk to a midwife on the phone.

    Unhappy

    I did but they dont seem to think its drastic..
    The blood is red and mixed with mucus but surelya mucus plug would be in such large amounts as i have been losing it all day,,
    i never had a show until my waters went with others could it just be a show..and im panicking for nothing
    Thanks jo

    Hi,
    I'd tend to think it's your mucus plug, with my first 3 I never lost my mucus plug until my waters had broken but with my last I was the same as you, small amount of blood with mucus. Wishing you all the best and that you get to hold your baby very soon.

    Regards,
    Dianne
