Is Brown Discharge Normal After Onset Of Contractions?

I have had contractions for the past 48 hours. I went the hospital yesterday and I was 2cm 60%. This morning when I woke up
My undies have a lot of brown blood in them. I figured it was from them
Checking me yesterday. Then about an hour later the discharge is still brown but also stringy (I guess like a blood clot) is this normal?

Hi,
This discharge is called show. Its normal to see it after the uterine os starts dilating. Normally it signifies the onset of early labour. When the contractions increase in intensity you need to go to the hospital.
