First off, sorry for the huge tmi. I just want to know what is going on and get experiences if I could. So a little background for my question. Yesterday I bled. The bleeding was just once. It was dark red/maroon and came out in gooey, mucusy, clotty fashion. It was enough to fill three large wads of toilet paper and it got everywhere. I made my way to L&D, contractions didn't register over 5 hours (I had a few before I went to l&d and they tapered off). Waters were intact. Baby is really, really low. I am still dilated to a 1 and I effaced 10 more % over a week. I lost my mucus plug last week over three days from Sunday to Tuesday. Anyhow, they sent me home saying that there may not have been a reason for the bleeding or it could have been my show. It is very up in the air. They want me to monitor closely what is going on. So here is my questions. I have been bleeding brown since yesterday and only when I wipe. It's coming out in flakes, or a bit watery, and sometimes mucusy with some yellow discharge mixed in. I have also passed a couple mid sized clots that are brown as well. For women who bleed in third trimester, is this normal type of bleeding? Could it be my 'show'? What are your ladies' experiences with a show or bleeding? How long after a show is normal to go into labor, if it was my show? Obviously, I want baby to stay in there as long as possible. I just need some reassurance, stories, etc...I don't really know what to look for as I'm a ftm. Thank you for reading and for any experiences/knowledge you can provide.
