I thought there had to be blood if it was the mucus plug? Does this mean i have already lost it? ALso, should i be expecting to go into labor anytime now? Im already dialated at a 2!!

no it doesnt have to be bloody. i havent shed a drop of blood this whole pregnancy (even after some intense manly fingers went in to check my cervix a few times)..and no one knows when labor will come, but i hope for both of us it does..SOON (im 38 weeks as well) haha labor dust to us!!

I'm having the same thing, I'm just hitting 38 weeks and I have not spotted once thoughout my entire pregnancy. I went to the doctor last week and he said I was 3 1/2 cm dilated and he said after my next appointment he'll see about putting me in the hospital. I go back Wednesday, but I noticed a big increase in discharge and I'm not stop wiping I just started wearing pantie liners cause I'm over wiping! Does it stop eventually? Should I be worried she'll be here before my appointment??
