I know it's not necessarily a sign that things are starting, but on Tuesday I lost my plug (lots of bloody mucus). Braxton hicks since then (I didn't have any before this).

Please please tell me this means I'm not facing 5 more weeks of this.... am 37 weeks, have ECV booked at 39 weeks as baby is in breech, although i'm on on all fours trying to help him turn!

mum - went into labour ward on Tuesday, but was sent home. Had a scan on thurs, they said if I go into labour I have plenty of time to get to hosp as it's my first (consultant said 8-12 hours!), and they'll do a c-sec.

My show was the start - latent labour started straight away, and DD was born 15 hours later. DC2, though. DC1 was induced.

DD2 - show Saturday morning, DD2 born Saturday lunchtime.

Show at 5.30pm, contractions started at 6.30pm, waters broke at 4am, DS arrived at 6am.

But my friend had her show 2 weeks before her waters broke, then contractions started 24 hours after that.

Sorry - not a great help to you

When I was 37+1 on Saturday morning I noticed little bit a show and called the hospital. They said to come over when I can so they can check if my waters were "leaking" and they were.

They told us to come back the following morning around 9 for induction if nothing had happened before that.
I went to induction ward but before I even saw the doctor my contractions started, that was about 30 minutes after we got there.

My son was born (37+2) at 4pm on Sunday.
