Time between bloody show and labour (poss TMI!)

Morning all!

I had a pink tinged show last night, and a heavier brown tinged show this morning. I think this might be the "bloody show" they talk about, rather than just a bit of plug.

I'm only 37 weeks and DS1 was pretty much on time. A quick google tells me that this show indicates labour will start in the next few days. I'm not quite ready!

What's your experience? Could it still be weeks until we meet baby? I'm happy with that, but would like some indication. Hospital bag isn't packed yet!

TIA.

My contractions started about 6 hours after the show. DS was born within 24 hours. Good luck!

Nothing moving here. Brown discharge on and off all day and the usual Braxton Hicks.

This is ok with me for now ...

Eight days for my second, with my first the show was about 6 hours before my waters went but the actual birth didn't happen for a couple more days.

My show came over two weeks, gave birth at exactly 39 weeks. It was never particully bloody though.

Have you packed your bag yet though wink

AnythingNotEverything Thu 26-Sep-13 21:49:12

I think so ... I might need to unpack it to be sure grin

No waters breaking or contractions here. Just some sludgy discharge (again, sorry - TMI), and lots of foetal movement.

I think baby has engaged a bit more though.
