Any bleeding vaginally at this stage of pregnancy could be due to problems in the placental position or slight separation of membranes. It could have happened due to excess straining. Mild contractions, known as spurious labor, occur at this stage, especially in the first pregnancy. They usually subside with no harmful effect but if they persist, help should be sought. I advice you to visit your doctor once for a checkup. Take care.
