Hi all. Well I had an appt with my OB today and he said I am 4 cm dilated and since the appt I have been having a little more mucus discharge with a little bit of pink though not alot. So Im trying to figure out if labor might be really close. Or if the pink could just possibly be from the exam itself.. The baby's head still hasnt descended but the dr just said that might not happen until active labor with this being my second child, which I had already read about.. So what do you all think?

The pink is probably just from the exam.<br><br>
My cousin walked around at 6cm's with a BBOW for over a week. With dd2 I was closed and just barely soft just a couple days before. People keep asking me when the m/w thinks this little guy is coming and I just keep telling them....only he knows.<br><br>
It could be only a day or two away or it could be a week or more. Only the baby knows.

Yep it would.. Of course the OB said we could induce if we wanted.. Though I really dont understand why they would offer when labor is progressing already.. I will never understand that..

I'd consider myself lucky to get to 4 cm without any fuss and muss! (I remember getting to the hospital at 4 cm after about 9 hours of pretty intense and painful contractions (ones I could not talk through), and feeling surprised to be so little dilated in comparison to what I had imagined).<br><br>
How many weeks are you? I bet your LO comes soon! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Wow, around here they often admit you at 4cm, which is probably why they asked if you wanted to be induced. Maybe some vigorous, um, love with your honey will get things going? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
