I know that it is common to see a bit of spotting after a pelvic exam, but just wondering if mine is from my exam or an actual 'show'? I am 38 weeks today and had the pelvic 2 days ago to check for dilation / effacement. My OB told me to expect some spotting, which I had a tiny nit of for the rest of the day. The next day I had nothing. Then this morning I felt like there was a lot of discharge (sorry TMI) and when I checked it was brownish mucus. Is this just old blood from the exam even thought I had nothing all day yesterday, or is this an actual 'show'?
here are some photos of mucous plug it can help you more...i think it is probably parts of it...my OB said the spotting is extremely light would be about pink and would happen within the first 12 hours so who knows...
