Bloody Show question. *Update*

  I had an exam yesterday, and I had bleeding after. All brown blood, and only for a few hours.

  I had contractions wake me up this morning, and I'm still getting them. They are still about 20 minuets apart. I also have a lot of discharge. It resembles snot, and there is a lot of bright red blood mixed in. 

  I've heard that the bloody show is tinged with pink, is it normal for it to be bright red? 

  Also, do you think this is a result of the exam, or the beginning of labor? 


*UPDATE*

  My doctor is sending me to L&D to be monitored. He thinks it might be early labor. 

  I'm going to pack my bags, and get in the shower before I head in.

Could be both! I had my bloody show last Wednesday, tons of discharge mixed with blood.

My daughter was born Thursday at 4 am! Did you have your membranes stripped?

It could be a bit of both, it could be the exam or it could be the beginning of labor. Just no way to know for sure.

With my third I had my mucus plug big and small pieces and some with blood for 5 weeks. My blood was from a pinkish, brown and red color. Just depending how how much was there and well the brown I know as because it was old.

  I didn't, it was just a quick exam. Congratulations on your baby girl :) hopefully mine will be here soon.

  I went right from 1 cm to labor with my first (I was 1cm for a month). I never lost my plug with him, and the doctor broke my water... So these are all new things to me lol.

  I'm having a lot of brown discharge now. The bright red just concerned me, I never like to see bright red blood.

You could always just call your dr if you are concerned.

  I think I'm going to, just to make sure. Anytime I see bright red blood, I get concerned.
