I'm 4 cm dilated, 70% effaced, had my membranes stripped Monday. Just went to L&D today for Labor check and I wasn't in true labor yet. Well the nurse gave me a regular cervix exam and when she pulled her fingers out said she wished I had had a bloody show. My midwife says the same thing when she checks me. Well I had never once spotted or anything after a cervix exam. But about 4 or so hours after my exam today I went to go pee and I had a blood tinged mucusy stringy thing when I wiped like I lost my plug and had a bloody show. My question is if you can loose your mucus plug and have your true 'bloody show' hours after an exam? Oh and I. Have a bad lower backache and this extreme sense of my baby pushing down and I feel like I have to poo but pretty much nothing comes out. And I still feel like I have to poo. Does this sound like labor is coming soon?
Update: okay so nothing has yet processed until tonight. For the past 6 hours I have been in the most unexplainable pain. It's like this belt is around the very bottom of my waist is causing these extreme pains there and in my very low back. My baby is pushing so har down on my rectum it makes me scream. I don't think I'm having any contractions but this pain is seriously more than I can handle and I can't even walk or stand up. Please someone tell me what to do. I've tried hot baths and showers but they do not help. What is this what should I do?? :((
