Thanks-just having twinges that feel as if they might develop (or could still be pg in a week!) but have had no show. Dd happened five days before, ds the night before, so labour with no show uncharted territory. Possible niagra falls washed away show?!!!
I lost my mucous plug about two weeks before I had my daughter; a few days prior to due date, but went nearly two weeks overdue in the end. Had the bloody show just before I started pushing - the midwife told me, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed it.
I had my "show" about 2 hours before ds arrived and had absolutely no symptoms of impending labour the day before at my mw appt (ds was barely engaged!). My contractions started in the morning 2-3mins apprt, show after my midwife examined me at 6-7cm and waters went 12mins before ds arrived.
This is not what was "What to expect...." so I pretty much ignored the contractions for the first few hours
