TMI: Possible bloody show?

I apologize that this is a very TMI post... I've been having lots of clearish/slightly yellow CM for weeks now.

So.... DH & I dtd'd this afternoon and then afterwards I wiped and saw pink mucous. For the last few hours every time I go to the bathroom it's pink when I wipe, and there is more on the panty liner I'm wearing. Added to that are the menstrual-type cramps I've been having for about an hour - nothing regular or ouchy, just there. I have also had about 6 rather intense contractions since 9 am.

Do you think this is just temporary aftermath from having sex? Or do you think this could be the bloody show and possibly the start of labor?

I am just so ready for this to be over that I keep hoping every single twinge is "it".

Ok, so the pink mucous has stopped. How long does bloody show usually last?

With my first baby I lost my mucous plug but never with my second. So with my first, I had just gone out to dinner and came home to pee and when I wiped, it definitely looked like a "mucous" plug lol. It basically looked like when you blow your nose with some blood tinged in it. And after that nothing else came. I started contracting the next day and gave birth the day after that!

This was more like what I get after an internal exam, just pink tinged CM but after an exam its usually more brown. This was bright pink. Not very snot-like....

I think I'm just being hopeful because I'm so over this now and just want to meet her already Blum 3

Unfortunately sleep has been a missing luxury for a few weeks now..... Been resting up as much as I can on the sofa.

Last night I decided to stop taking it super-easy and start pushing myself a little on walks to try and get this baby girl to be ready a little sooner.

No, the contractions have eased a fair amount. When they do come they're very erratic.
