Hi Keashia, looks like you may be going into labour, now you need to relax, time your contractions and if they are coming as frequent as once every 10-15 min then you should go to the hospital immediately.Don't worry a little blood spoting just before going into active labour is normal and called SHOW, wish you an uneventful normal delivary!
