Could i be in labor from this?

i had my 36 week pelvic exam this morning and along with the pinkish spotting that i have heard is normal i also had a little bit of stringy dark red stuff and have been getting cramps. I was already crampy with back ache all night before the exam. Could the pelvic exam possibly put me into labor?

  • Sure can. My next door neighbor went for a pelvic exam, and as soon as he got the speculum in, her water broke! But if you are in labor, you'll KNOW. There won't be any guessing!
