I'm 39+1 and at my dr's appt this morning the dr said I was about 2cm dilated and tried to stretch my cervix to open it more. It was very uncomfortable and she said I'd probably have some bleeding afterward. She gave me a pad and there was only a little blood when I wiped this morning but then this afternoon a lot of dark red/brownish blood came out. Is that normal after having your cervix stretched? I also got a bunch of BH contractions afterward with lower back pain and cramping and thought I might be in labor but then it stopped after a couple hours. I'm guessing the stretching caused that?
