What do you ladies with experience think? From experience am I likely to be waiting another couple of days or should I be ready for some baby action over next 24 hours

After my show I started contractions pretty much right away so fingers crossed they come soon

I had a big bloody show at 40+4 then more and more on and off through the day, then just after 1am at 40+5 it all kicked off and my DD arrived six hours later smile Fingers crossed for you.

You just can't tell! Every labour is different, but I would be ready for things to kick off. If this is your first baby its unlikely to be fast, but how fast were your mum's labours? It can be relevant (all other things being equal).

I had a bloody show at 40+4

Dd born 40+13

Relax could be imminent, might not, but relaxing is always the way forward

Sounds good smile Am ready but trying not to get my hope up too much

My mum had c-section with both me and my younger brother at around 38 weeks so unfortunately unable to compare sad

With labours one and two bloody show was in the evening and I started contracting overnight
Labour three bloody show only after I'd been having contractions for a while

Keep mobile and have a warm bath. This is what the nurses advise on the ward. My bath caused my waters to break. Then the fun really started. Prior to that I was losing a lot of my plug but I was having contractions all the time.

My contractions started the same day as my show. Good luck!
