cramping and mucus ?

Hi everyone, I'm just about 37 weeks, when I went to the doctor about 4 days ago, she told me I'm 1 cm dilated and 70% thinned. Last night I was having mild cramping. And when I woke up and used the bathroom this morning I noticed some mucus like leakage... what does this mean? Any advice? First baby and I'm nervous.

My labor started with period like cramps and blood tinged mucus. You may be in the beginnings of labor. Good luck! But you should definitely call you doctor and report in. :)

Yeah I keep having bad cramps, all day they come & go.

Me too. For the past couple days I've had random cramps, but seemed to have more today as well as Braxton Hicks. No mucus or water breakage yet though.

I'm hoping she comes sooner then expected, I am so anxious.
