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.

Ooh it's so exciting ! Hope you aren't waiting too long x

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.

Have you packed your bag yet though wink

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

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.

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

This is ok with me for now ...

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

About 8 hours.

Dolallytats Wed 25-Sep-13 20:49:04

About 10mins for me too. Show at around 4am, DD born at almost 1pm. I'd make sure you have you're hospital bags to hand if I were you!! Good luck.

PinkApple86 Wed 25-Sep-13 18:20:36

Had a bloody show 6 days ago and have been gradually losing plug for about 3 days. I'm 6 day's overdue and have no labour signs. First dc. It could still be a while for u.

HDino Wed 25-Sep-13 14:39:51

Had a pink tinged discharge in the morning and then lost my plug 12 hours later, waters broke 30 mins after that and baby born 1.5 hours later.

I would get your bag packed to be safe. Doesn't necessarily mean you will end up going into labour as others have said each person is different. But I also didn't think it would happen so quickly x

Ditsydebs Wed 25-Sep-13 14:29:34

12 hours for me with both children.
Good luck x

Thewhingingdefective Wed 25-Sep-13 13:11:27

That's more like it. A more balanced view!
