asking again....kinda gross beware

38 weeks, dialated to a 4, 50% effaced and I lost my mucus plug today. It was REALLY bloody. Called my doctor and she seems to think it could be left over gel from my vaginal exam. I have had many pap smears and I would like to think I know the difference. Anyways my question is if anyone has expierenced this when did they go into labor.

  • It's normal to bleed after an examination.

    And by the way, dilation and effacement mean nothing. You could be stuck at that til you're 42 weeks or go into labor tomorrow. Doesn't mean you'll go into labor soon or anything.

  • I lost my mucus plug with my first at 18 weeks and was on bed rest at 27 weeks and induced at 37 weeks. My second I lost my mucus plug at 16 weeks and on bed rest at 21 weeks and delivered at 35 weeks and 2 days.
