bloody show question adult content

i woke up this morning and went pee and when i wiped i noticed blood, i called my doctor and he told me that it was just the bloody show, but I haven't noticed anything since other then a little more discharge. Is this normal? when you have the bloody show do you bleed till u have baby?

I'm 36 weeks.

  • No, it may just mean that you're starting to dilate (no need to panic, some women dilate months before they deliver), or your mucus plug could be getting ready to make its exit (again, not a sign of imminent labor). I doubt you'll bleed from now until delivery. That's very uncommon.

  • Nope. You are all good. I would like to reiterate what the two ladies before me have said!

  • Not necessarily. "Bloody show" is just the mucus plug, so you'll only spot like that until the plug is gone. At which point you might have the baby, or you might not for another 4-6 weeks.
