hello?
Ok.Thanka for the information.
Is this her first pregnancy?
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
yes
Is she having any other symptoms like:
persistent lower back pain
persistent cramping
contractions that gradually increase in intensity and duration.
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
none of those, just a little bit of blood
Ok.If its little bit bloody discharge, it's very normal and it indicates that her cervix is dilating and ther body is prepared for the delivery. It's called bloody show and its normal at the end of pregnancy. She may go into labour soon.
If the bleeding is heavy like a period, she should contact her gynecologist immediately!
I hope it helps.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
