I had my membranes stripped earlier and I was at 3 1/2 cm. The doctor told me to just look for the obvious signs of labor etc or period like bleeding. When she said period like she means bright red and such right? All the red mucous gunk is okay? Sorry first time doing labor on my own and a little paranoid.

A couple hours after I had my membranes stripped (the 2nd time) with my daughter I started losing my mucous plug and had bright red blood as well. I didn't start having contractions until the next day though but I wasn't admitted until the day after because I wasn't dilated very much.



You could go into labor soon. If so good luck! :)

So don't worry about how bloody it is?



Thanks I'm hoping I do! No contractions yet :(.

I only had light spotting after the fact for an hour maybe 2 hours max. Have you been bleeding all day? Is it just spotting or period like flow?

I had spotting after it. Not period flow.. It mucous consistency. Very red. I'm trying to get a picture but I'm mobile.

It could be your bloody show. The first part of my mucus plug only had a bit of blood in it, like a couple of streaks. But the next part was all blood. If it is your show then something will probably start happening soon. Good luck!!!

I'm waiting for the contractions to start like a kid on Christmas. Now that my husband went to work I'm hoping it'll start somwthing .

Oh, that is definitely the mucus plug or part of it anyways. Nothing to worry about. GL! Hope you make progress.
