Weird wormy thing

Weird wormy thing
Greenville, South Carolina, USA
April 5, 2016
We've been finding these on the second story of our house near rugs and on carpeted areas. Most have been dead, but we found a live one this morning. It moved in a way similar to an inchworm. On close inspection, the back markings on this creature have a braided appearance. Assuming this is a millipede, but thought that would be odd for the second story. Truly stumped.
