this morning i was laying in bed having my normal pre labor painful ctx, then one particularly hard one, and decided to just get up. after the ctx, i stood up and had a horrible burning/sharp pain in my cervix. waited for it to end, went to the bathroom, and there was blood! i always thought bloody show would be mucus with some pink in it, but this dripped out a few drops, and i wiped it a few times and it was bright red, and in the amount of a light period. i called midwife who said if it stops in 10 minutes, its nothing to worry about. it has stopped so i guess im not worried but was that bloody show? will i finally have my baby soon? anyone else experience anything like this? ive been loosing my mucus plug for days but theres never any blood. ideas?

it's different for everyone.

with my first there was no blood in the mucus, with this one there was lots of blood in it.

good luck!!! :

I agree its different for everyone and each pregnancy. The first time I had lost my mucus plug for days and then when I thought I 'might' be in labor, quite a bit of red blood came out. I was concerned about the amount and how red it was but my MW said it was normal. I did end up in labor that night and DD1 was born the next morning. For DD2, I never had a bloody show just a rapid fire labor!

I don't know, but it's exciting!! I'm sure it's fine and you're probably in labor right now!!!!
Good Luck!
