It's been a week now. Constant flow of brown/pink fluid. Sometimes it's more goopy like partially dried rubber cement, but usually it just seeps into the pad as brown spots. Does anyone know how long is normal for this to flow like this?

I have an OB appointment today and am not generally open to internal exams--but I'm a little worried I might be leaking a little or something--and i'm GBS +.

I had bloody show for a month w/ Thomas. (And was gbs+.) All was fine.

I wasn't GBS+ but I had bloody show for weeks before I was induced with DS so who knows how long I would have had it. I know that you have more if you get your membranes stripped and some professionals do that without your knowledge/consent when they check you.

I had bloody show about a week or more before Noah was born. I thought labor was to start within a few days, and alas, it didn't! You never know. Our bodies definitely don't go by the book most of the time...
