according to your description,
you are going into labor,
presence of show,
dilatation of cervix up to 1 cm,
increase bowel movements
all indicating onset of labor pains.
in multies some amount of dilatation can be sen but in primies it usually indicate onset of labor,
so you better go to hospital as early as possible.
take care.
