Bloody discharge at 36 weeks

I've been having bloody discharge / extremely light bleeding for 3 days now. I've been checked out at the labour ward who said it's probably just my body getting ready and come back if it gets heavier.

Do you think this is a show? What else could it be? I'm not sure that I understand where it's coming from. I'm not really worried, having lots of movement etc. I'm just curious really. The dr didn't seem concerned but didn't have that much of a clue as to what it was.

Come on psychic mumsnetters, tell me what it is and if it means my baby is coming early wink

This is my 3rd btw. Never had this with the others who were born at 40 and 41 weeks.

It's probably coming from your cervix, which suggests that things are stretching and moving. I think it can mean things are imminent but also go on for a good while.

I expect in my case it will be a while!
