Can anyone explain this? I went to the hospital today for cramps and back pain. They put a monitor on my belly to check the heartbeat and for contractions. My contractions were 10-15 minutes apart but we're irregular so they sent me home. She checked my cervix, and I've been bleeding, losing some stringy membrane looking things for about two hours now. Blood clots but not extremely dark. Like a medium red color. I am 2cm dilated, 60% effaced and at a -2 ...not sure what the -2 means. I was shaking so bad when she was telling me because I freaked out thinking that my baby was coming soon. I'm sorry if this was too graphic (: thank you ladies!!
