Does spotting mean your in early labor?

I am 38.5 weeks. I have had red spotting on and off the past 3 days. What could this be? Is it a sign of early labor? Did anyone else bleed and cramp (like the begining of a period) before they went in labor?
Is this a sign that my cervix is thinning?

  • My midwife said that ANY bleeding and I should call her immediately so that they could find out what is going on. I suggest getting to the Dr. immediately.

  • Pink- or brown-tinged discharge (a lot of it) could be your mucus plug. But just spotting without the discharge isn't normal.
