  • Do you have stairs? Walking on stairs is actually more effective then going for a long walk. Bloody show can happen weeks before delivery and sex is VERY likely to bring on bloody show late in pregnancy:(

    It could be the start of labor but its most likely just from the sex? How far along are you? Has your doctor done a vaginal check lately? How dilated & effaced were you and what station was your princess at?

  • Bloody mucus means nothing (except that you're dilating). Sex doesn't bring labor. I wouldn't be able to tell you about contracting because I get these menstrual like cramps all the time and these painful back left and right side pains. I'm 40 weeks, miserable and ready to have this baby. I'm glad I will be induced Friday. When you can't type, speak or keep your mouth closed...that's when you're in labor. :)

  • Sperm can help to thin out your cervix and essentially help bring labor on. The pressure in your pelvic area across to your butt could be the baby pushing downwards. Bloody show and mucous could be the plug, thinning membranes releasing from your cervix. Call your doctor and ask what they want you to do. Advise how far apart your contractions are and 38 weeks along means your baby has an excellent chance of breathing on her own if you delivered her now.

    Keep walking, drink lots of water and keep us posted.
