What constitutes "a show?"

36 weeks. Always had milky looking discharge throughout preg, but today it was more in one go and thicker, like glue.

Also seem to be permanently in a Braxton Hicks contraction. Like my stomach has been shrink wrapped. It's very solid, hard and painful and I have a constant stitch on my right hand side.

Also so hot all the time. I haven't got a temperature, but feeling hotter than anyone else in the room, sleeping naked without any covers on and the window open.

Is this just late pregnancy?

A show usually has a little bit blood in it. Think bloody semen. Tmi. I know.

My show was thick with blood in it, I knew I was in labour as I'd power walked the day before and had on off pains all night. I was desperate not to be induced and was do happy when I had my show.

Yeah, streaked with blood and really really thick and snotty in texture. I flicked mine across the bathroom accidentally and it spatted on the floor blush you'll just know when it happens. Good luck!! thanks

Could be signs your body is preparing for labour. The last few weeks are unbearable, I felt like my Fanjo was going to drop out hmm
Hope you don't have to wait too much longer!
