No need to worry: There is no need to worry about light spotting or bleeding in late pregnancy. It is not uncommon especially after having a vaginal exam. You also don't need to worry that your cervix has not started to dilate. Many women are not dilated at 39 weeks.

Good question: That's such a good question, and the answer is complicated. In my experience, women who had a lot of deliveries oftentimes the cervix will be the same for weeks on end and then will change suddenly. That is, labor when it comes causes rapid changes to the cervix. I'm like a woman's first delivery where the change is more methodical. ...Read more
