40 wks on Monday with 3rd and having starts and stops of b hicks but no show. was induced with first so didn't have any then but did have it with second. trying not to be impatient but so uncomfortable!

i never had a show, 1st time i was induced, the second time my first sign of labour was my waters breaking, feel a little hard done by!

i was the same with waters breaking on second. i wish it would happen the same way as then i would know there was no going back instead of this off/on business 3rd time around.

Never had a show here (3 babies, all natural deliveries) - ds1 and dd waters broke first; ds2 straight into regular contractions.

The only time I have ever had a show was when I was established labour with DD2 but by that point I was in too much pain to care!

Didn't have one at all with DD1 or DS and haven't had one this time (yet) and i'm 40 weeks tomorrow.

Good Luck

Never had a show, never had any waters breaking, with my second just very strong continuous contraction, baby was born within 40 minutes of getting to hospital.

funny how you go so long checking your pants and praying for nothing and now it's opposite!

No show; waters didn´t break, felt a bit robbed!

No show here. Waters did not break either, even though when I got to labour ward I was 9cm dilated. They had to break my waters after about 15mins.

Only had a show well into labour with all 3.

Good luck! Not long now!

Went into labour twice spontaneously, once waters broke and other woke up in labour. No show either time.

No show but waters broke (it was like a river!!!)

orangehead Sat 16-Aug-08 22:38:21

1st- think I had show when my waters broke as they were a bit bloody, sorry tmi
2nd- didnt have a show

Ceolas Sat 16-Aug-08 22:41:12

I think it happens a lot. I went straight to contractions with 3 out of 4 and only had a show after a sweep with my DS (number 3).

Had a lot of show whilst in labour last time but none beforehand.

PrettyCandles Sat 16-Aug-08 22:42:04

With all 3 I didn't have a show until well into established labour. And each time my waters only broke when I was pushing.

BouncingTurtle Sat 16-Aug-08 22:45:43

I didn't have a show until less than an hour before I gave birth.

TreadmillMom Sun 17-Aug-08 10:54:26

2 natural births, I've never seen a show.
DS1 waters broke approx 7 hours after contractions had begun.
DS2 waters broke and contractions begun 30 minutes later.

Never had a show. First time my waters broke at home right at the start of labour, second time they broke at (approx) 9cm dilated as I got to hospital.
