bloody show?

I'm 38 weeks & I went to the doctor this morning, got checked and i was 1cm..i came home, cleaned my house and a couple hours later (after lots of pain) i go to the bathroom, wipe and bloody mucus came out..not a whole lot..later, more came out and now its just back to being mucus with no blood in it..since then ive had this pain in my back that comes and goes but nothing thats really consistent yet..i feel so much more pressure now though
do you think that was my bloody show? and if so, how soon should i go into labor?

  • I will guess that it's more likely to be from the vaginal exam.
    But no matter, dilation/bloody show/etc. indicates your body is getting ready and there is no way to say how soon you'll hit active labor.
    It could be in 2 hours, 2 days, or 2 weeks... more or less.
    BUT have faith in your body, it IS getting ready, it's working on it!
