  • if you are bleeding call the doctor immediately! if your contractions stopped suddenly it could be nothing but it could be BAD since you are bleeding!

  • Every women is different... i haven't gotten any bloody show or spotting and i am 2 cm dilated and have been for a week... you only get the bloody show after sex or if your uterus is shedding tissue ... if it's more than a pink tinge in your panties or when you wipe, call your health care provider... bleeding is different than spotting/tinted discharge. You may also get that when/if your mucous plug releases... not all women notice when they loose it because it can be all at once or over a few days. And yes, you could be dilating more since you're feeling pain in your vagina... when you go for your next visit, ask them to see how dilated you are!
