  • It could be from the mucus plug being dislodged when they checked. So I would say probably both. That's how mine came out with my first, after a check at 36 or 37 weeks. No labor by my C-section at 39 weeks, though, so it doesn't necessarily mean anything as far as labor goes, especially when the reason for it is probably the internal exam.
