41 weeks pregnant with mucus and spotting

Patient: I am 41 weeks pregnant and lost my mucus plug and I am spotting what should I do?

 

 

Doctor: The appearance of blood and mucus or `show` is a sign that your cervix is dilating and this usually signals that you wil l be experiencing labor shortly. I would suggest that you consult your doctor if you start experiencing contractions or if the bleeding increases.
