Not everyone does. With my first i went into my 36 wk appt and was at a 1 and had no bleeding at all. So i think it depends on the person.
I bled for 5 days it just stoped yesterday...the doc couldn't tell me why but I think it was bc I was dialating ....but so far I'm only a 2
I haven't been bleeding, I have had some (tmi) brown discharge. My contractions are seeming to get worse.
I would go ahead and call...you could be in labor
I never lost my mucus plug, I just started having contractions really bad, went in and was dialated to a 6 so they kept me. My water broke while I was in the hospital but they never mentioned the mucos plug.
I actually started bleeding brown blood Monday after my doctor checked my cervix. It wasn't much blood, mostly spotting. I went back in Wednesday because the spotting kept on. Got admitted to labor and delivery, and I dilated to 4cm and contractions about 1 minute apart. This took place all within an hour, and I'm holding my baby boy right now after a 7 hour labor. I would call and get checked with the bleeding because you could be in early labor.
