Hi, am getting close to due date and looking for signs of labour...

I had a show with my first pregnancy abt 4 - 5 days prior to labour starting.

Im wondering if this will happen again...

Did u hav a show in your 1st pregnancy, if so how long before labour started?
And did u hav a show in your 2nd pregnancy and how long before labour started did this occur? Was there a similarity?

first pregnancy - waters broke, then show then baby 4 hours and a bit later

second pregnancy - contractions first then little show then waters had to be broken at 10cms 10 mins before she was born.

Both labours very different only similarity was the speed.

first pregnancy - had show about 3 hours before contractions started.

second - had show 24 hours before cx started.

third - had show about 10 hours before cs started.

Was similar each time in that the show wasn't what I expected - was just like fresh blood iykwim.

good luck
