Anything to worry about?

I went to the doctor today (I am 37 weeks along) and I had the strep test done today and he also checked my cervix to see if I am dilating. I am 1 cm dialated. A few hours later when I was using the bathroom I had this pinkish mucus stuff on the toilet paper. I am just assuming its from the step test and checking my cervix that caused a little bleeding but I dont know. What do you guys think?

  • that's normal. since you're 1 cm dilated, that's just your mucus plug coming out. it comes out as you dilate.

    don't stress! it does not mean you are having a baby tonight or even this week :) the mucus plug can regrow :)

  • I had started loosing a bit of my plug (or at least thats what I think it is) the past couple of days but it was not pink. I am thinking its just from the test and cervix check is the reason it was pink. I sometimes have a little blood after regular yearly exams. thanks everyone.
