I had an exam on Wednesday morning. Before my exam, I lost a good bit of my plug. When went in, I was 2cm dilated, my cervix had gone from 4cm to 1cm (in two weeks) and baby is at -1 station. I had a little more mucus during the day (usually after a round of contractions). Then that night I had a ton of pressure and lots of bloody show. Had more yesterday, all day. It's been a mix of spotting and blood mixed in with mucus plug. I thought it would be done by now but it's still happening this morning.
Do you think all of this is from the exam? The midwife was super gentle. I could hardly feel her in there and it was quick. I've had this kind of thing with my other pregnancies, but that was when I had my membranes stripped - did NOT happen this time around or even close.
I know the plug can regenerate but I'm surprised that I'm still spotting along with it. Some of it has been reddish brown, too (even as recently as last night).
