Way TMI question

Hello all,

Wednesday night I had the whole false labor thing...6 hours of 15 min apart contractions and then stopped at 8pm. Sad

I went to my 39 week appt yesterday and due to insurance challenges and desperately needing/wanting baby to come before 9/1 (b/c of said insurance challenges) but wanting it to be all natural I did ask her to check and see where I am at. I am 1cm and 70% and she did the sweep to encourage things. They did the U/S and said that my fluids are low.

Last night when I got home about 1.5 hrs after appt there was blood which I was expecting and nothing more after that, just a bit when I wiped. I have been drinking like crazy to try and bring up the fluids and have another appt tomorrow. I have also been doing the nipple stimulation to try and get things moving.

Here is the question...when I just went to the restroom there was a BIG (in my mind) brown blood clotty/mucusy type thing. Was this the plug or bloody show or left overs from yesterday? Any thoughts?

Thanks!!

I have no experience but hopefully it was bloody show.

That sounds like bloody show to me. Good luck, I hope baby comes soon!

Sounds very promising to me too. I've never had the whole spotting thing after a sweep or exam- only the yuckiness (looks exactly like what you are describing) that comes with being in labor.
Keeping my cell phone close!

*lurker*

I would say definitely bloody show. Have you tried DTD? It really can help move things along!

Hello,

I will not let DH anywhere near me I am so swollen down there it hurts to walk sometimes. Smile

Anyway, we went back this am for an u/s follow up and fluids are up from 7 to 9.9 so m/w is very happy. She did another sweep and said that baby is at -3, still 1 cm and 70%. We went to the mall and walked around for a while and are now home where I am cleaning and lots of contractions but I have not timed them b/c they do not feel consistent.

Here's to hoping something happens soon!!
