I was just rinsing off sitting on the side of the tub tonight (hard to get all the way in for a nice rinse these days), and something inside me went "pop!"... then I felt crampy and needed to poop but nothing came out...
What does that mean? Is there some kind of time allotment for what this means?

ETA: then there was a bit of blood... I thought I would know what I was doing with this!

Are you leaking anything? When my water broke there was a "pop" and then bloody show but only a small trickle of amniotic fluid because her head was in the way. Sounds like maybe it could be that for you, too. Good luck!
