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.

I've been pregnant 3 times the first time I went into labor early at 20 weeks and the baby boy past away right after. the second time they called it a?
Not clear history: Sorry about your loss. If all 3 pregnancy were spontaneously aborted at 20 weeks or earlier, it's a high risk of chromosomal abnormalities of the fetuses.
