Cramping and spotting...need advice. Loca Mamma Due December 29 (boy); 3 kids; 4 angel babies; Tucson, AZ, United States 1523 posts

So I am 33 weeks 3 days and every since my premature incident i have been contracting off and on with cramping and some pressure. Now I am constantly cramping with some contractions and pressure, I started spotting brown and it increased and now more like dark pink color. I have had snot like discharge come out and even sometimes white like discharge. I have gone to labor n delivery but I wasn't having a lot contractions but a lot cramping/irritation that showed up,so I was just sent home. So I am just wondering if anyone has had this experience or can give me any idea why this happening? Is my body just getting ready for labor or...? Is it cause for concern or normal? TIA.

What has your doctor told you? I find it very concerning if he/she has not really prepped you for when you need to call and/or go into L&D. These things really need to be gone over. 
As for the cramping and spotting, have you been following your bed rest? Have you been straining yourself? I say call L&D if you are really concerned. If you have been doing a lot of walking or straining, lay down and rest and drink lots of fluids and see if it stops.

She tells me the reasons why I should go in and so does L&D and everytime I go in its for those reasons. She also says like you said lay down drink stuff etc. I do that but it still happens. I have a appointment with my doc on friday so I'll talk to her some more and maybe get some answers. I do as much resting as I can, but I have 3 kids and one is 2 1/2 so I have him during the day while the other boys are at school. I have told her that too,so she knows I can't exactly lay down all day and my hubby works during the day but he does help when he's around. I have only had these things happen when I started to go into labor and then like a week or so later i gave birth. So I was just wondering if anyone knows some possible reasons.
