So in a previous post I mentioned that last Thursday I felt a gush and found lots of mucus and a little blood in my underwear. It kept going like that on and off till Friday morning. At my appointment on Friday my cervix got checked (almost fully effaced, 1 cm dilated, baby' head very low) which resulted in quite a bit of bleeding along with mucous (small gushes again). The bleeding has tapered off somewhat over the weekend (took about 2 days) but the amount of pink-tinged, otherwise clear mucous I've been getting is crazy! It sort of looks like EWCM - except way more and with a little blood in it.
I don't know if the blood is still from the cervix check or from before that, or what is up with the huge amount of mucous. I am wearing a pantyliner and it went through that, my panties and my pants over night even though I got up several times to pee and wipe. At first I thought I might be leaking amniotic fluid but I *think* it's just very watery mucus.
Today I am having contractions with a little pain (like mild menstrual cramps) and lots of pressure down there, but I haven't bothered timing or anything since they really don't hurt much. Has anyone experienced these crazy amounts of discharge, and if so did you notice any sign of blood? If this is the "bloody show", how long can it possibly last (it's been going on for days now). It's driving me crazy because it makes me think that things may be happening, but... nothing is. It's also embarrassing to go out in public because these gushes have gone through my pants a few times (just a little) and it freaks me out!
Oh, and I'm sure it's not pee.
Has anyone experienced "the show" and what was it like?
