How long to dilate?

My doc check my cervix today (week 38) and said I’m 1cm dilated and there will be mucus plug coming out soon. True enough, saw some blood. Wondering how long should the blood last? And how long does contraction kicks in after 1cm dilation? Or does water bag burst first? Thank you! :)?

Its not the same for everyone. Mine had very strong contractions like 10 hrs after the bloody show and waterbag didnt even burst. The doc had to burst it for me in the hosp
