Remind me - how long is it likely to be after a show before labour starts? Was the next day with dd but I seem to think that's not always the case...

Any particular rules when it's a second dc?

I had a show over about four days, increasingly bloody, DD was born on the fifth day.

I think i had my show this morning, but from reading up about it earlier, i dont necessarily think it always leads to labour. I read that some shows happen from 30 weeks and that your body can regenerate it.

I dunno though, i dont think mine has led to anything though. But i'm crossing my fingers. At 40+9 i'm ready now, had a sweep yesterday, another booked for Saturday and then being induced on Monday.

if it helps any, for DS1, I had about 21 hours between show and baby.
No show for DS2
GOOD LUCK, both of you!
