Hi,

It's OK: The baby may be down far enough in the pelvis that the mucous is trapped in the vagina right now. You may get a rush of discharge at some point. Are you feeling well otherwise and the baby moving OK? Talk to your OB if you have concerns. ...Read more

Is having a bloody show a good sign that labour is on the way within a couple of days at 39 weeks pregnant?

Yes: Bloody show is a good sign that your cervix is softening and opening, but we cannot narrow it down to "a couple of days". Unfortunately, there's no way to predict how much longer it will be. But you are going in the right direction! ...Read more

38 weeks pregnant and a lot of bloody show baby is transverse and booked in for section should I call ER or is this ok ?

38 weeks pregnant and  a lot of bloody show baby is transverse and booked in for section should I call  ER or is this ok ?

Get checked now pls: I would head to your labor and delivery to get checked right away. Bloody show can mean your cervix is dilating. At 38 weeks with a transverse baby you do not want your to water to break as this puts you at risk for the cord to come out. You also need to make sure the bleeding is not from something else. Get checked and make sure all is ok. ...Read more
