My body started 'cleaning out' weeks before labor. And all I ever had that could be considered bloody-showish was a slight bit of blood within the increased cervical mucus.
But, labor was indeed underway. Sometimes our bodies just don't give us much of a 'heads up' like we're expecting it to. I didn't even know for sure I was in active labor until I slammed right into transition! I'm NOT KIDDING.
But all is well and she's now almost exactly 4 days old.
