Spotting before labor?

I'm 39 weeks and 4 days. I went to the doctor yesterday and I think she might have stripped my membranes. She tlod me that I would definitely have spotting. She was right b/c I've had brown spotting since yesterday at 12pm. My sister works in a hospital and was asking her co-workers about this and they said that a lot of the time spotting can happen a day or two before larbor starts. Has this happened to anyone? Do you know if there is any truth to this?

  • It sounds like it's from the vaginal exam/membrane sweep.
    If you were having bloody show it should be brighter. So you might go into labor soon, or not. But that prelabor spotting (bloody show) would be fresher.
