I am nearly 36 weeks pregnant with my first baby. Yesterday I noticed a very small amount of blood after going to the toilet. Could this be part of the "show" or indicate that my baby is starting to engage deeper into the pelvis? I have been feeling a bit crampy as well.

Answer: Hi, It is recommended that you have a check up as you may be starting to go into labour. If this is the case your baby is still a bit early so you and the baby need to be closely watched. Best wishes, Alex
