Ooo good info. I did Google bloody show and the bleeding after sex looked like typical post sex bleeding and semen. To me, this new glob looked more like bloody show and was accompanied by the closet thing I had to a contraction. I did have a few. But meh idk if anything if it was wouldn't my cervix effacement be higher? I poop all day every day though lol. Can't even remember my last solid poo. It's either loose or full on diarrhea the moment I eat. I poop like 5x a day r_r. Going on three weeks now lol

It's all very subjective based on the dr doing the check. I don't understand why the effacement is so different though, the dilation difference is common. The station is just because the baby hasn't fully engaged into your pelvis yet so he can still move in and out.

When I get my bloody show, I'm half a centimeter to 1 cm dilated and not well effaced. My body doesn't do this work for me until I'm in active labor. So, no, not necessarily. Keep an eye on it, and if you have your baby before I have mine, I'll just mutter mean things under my breath. lol

Lol xd! I'm glad I'm not the only one who mutters things when others have their babies before mine. I know I should be thankful he's still cooking but man I want him to come out already lol

The bleeding seems to be slowing down into spotting so shrugs. Bounced on my ball and took a walk and all that did was make me take a three hour nap

Just remember that these are the last days that you get to be pregnant with this baby. Sometimes it sucks or feels like forever until you get the meet him but you'll never have the chance to hold him this close or feel him inside you again once he's born. Try to be patient and calm and treasure this time. It's true that your baby will likely be just fine if he's born now but there's still a lot of brain and lung development that happens all the way until full term.

Yeah, but the development stage his brain and lungs are at beyond 38-39w is growth not structural/development and can take place out of the womb according to several university studies on the stages of lung and brain development.

I'm also not particularly connected to this pregnancy. I have anterior placenta, so I barely feel him unless he makes big movements so most of the day I forget he's there. I just have this bump that makes me 30lbs heavier and makes life really inconvenient. I cancelled my maternity shoot because I hate my body: the weight, the double chin, the pimples, the blotchy skin... it literally disgusts me to look in the mirror or see pictures of myself and people say I'm so cute for being pregnant. He never kicks for other people, and they make me feel like it's my fault or that I should be worried or that they are disappointed. I'm not enjoying third trimester at all. And my return work date is set so the older he is the better I'd feel, so I want him out between now and 40. Ideally 39w. SO leaves next weekend for a weekend trip, and he won't go if I haven't had him and he needs to go. I have anxiety and depression which was fine until four weeks ago when I started to wonder if you can get prepartum depression and almost called my therapist. I only felt better once I realized hey I don't have to be pregnant anymore soon.

But yeah. I'm grateful for my rainbow and having an uncomplicated, healthy pregnancy for once but I'm really ready to not be pregnant anymore.

I feel for you Dobbs I'm always a miserable late third trimester preggo. It's just super painful & you're constantly anxious about when the baby will come.
Have you tried any safe home induction methods yet?
Try drinking really strong red raspberry leaf tea and then go for a walk or walk on a treadmill. Hth fx'd baby makes his arrival soon!

Just sex the one time. It just hurt so bad and amounted to a scare I doubt I can psych myself up to it again nor does SO want to go there. I have a labor ready masssge tomorrow. If anything it'll be nice to get some relief from this backache. Been drinking RLT since 32w. I bounce on the ball. I think the problem is I went from teaching and moving all day to summer vacation. =\

Forgot to update. I don't know if this was my bloody show so much as my placenta calcified and detached. I was fortunate to go into labor two days later and my son was only 5 lbs. Gyn said I was lucky as not every baby "realizes" it's not getting nutrients and goes into labor. I'm just so mad they didn't catch this as he suddenly started falling behind in measurements and the bleeding... they didn't even tell me, they were whispering it behind my back according to my mom and the gyn said it was in the notes and my placenta should have been sent for analysis but it wasn't.
