  • I would go back to the hospital. You sound like you are in active labor. They wont stop labor at 36 weeks.

  • They let you leave the hospital after the bloody show? Was it a lot of blood or mucus and blood. Mucus and blood would be your plug. Labor will be along shortly. Get your things together.

  • I was sent away after I my mucus plug came out. They decided I wasnt in labor yet. Just having the mucus plug come out doesnt mean you are going in labor right away.

  • i think it's best to just wait at home until labor does begin, active labor i mean. (((Hugs))) it likely will be soon but things could stall out and you could have a few weeks left. good luck! why did they do an ultrasound btw?

  • Period like cramps usually indicate labor. You should go to labor & deliver. Congrats on making it to 36 weeks since you went into preterm labor before. Try not to worry.
