I had a show today (I think) like a big blob of snot (tmi, sorry) with a bit of blood in. Am 39+4 so hopefully it's the start of things..........

Ah well - I think I had a few of these 'light shows' in the 2 or 3 weeks before the birth.

Thanks for the responses. I spoke to the midwife who agreed that it was probably a show.

However, nothing else happened and still waiting for contractions to start!

I'd say show - mine was much more like (light) bleeding for several hours than the snotty lump I was expecting. First noticed at 1.30am, was in labour by the following evening. Good luck!

I would say it was a show! Mine came away in bits and pieces, a bit would appear, then 3 days later a bit more.

Good luck smile

Thanks, I think I'll give the midwife a call anyway if only to put my mind at rest! It hasn't been the easiest pregnancy so I'd just drive myself mad with worry.

Oh, I had that both times. In my case it was just little bits of mucus coming away - the body gearing up as it were. but if you are worried obviously talk to your midwife.

Hopefully not long now!

Hi, hope someone can help as I'm not sure whether to be worried or excited!

I'm 39w + 1 with DC2. Basically, just went to the loo and when I wiped there was a wee bit of pinkish/red blood. Is this the show or something else?

With DC1 I was induced and I remember the mucus plug being like a giant snot with blood in it! Because it's nothing like that this time round, I'm a bit worried. I have been having an increased amount of discharge over the last few days though.

Please someone reassure me!
