Hi - please could you tell me how long you had between your show and your baby being born? Thanks!!!

Only had it once out of 3. 2 days.

Hoping this one gets a move on without a show (40+4)

Snap, LuluMama, a week for me too!

memmawizz Tue 28-Aug-07 19:03:29

thanks guys!! been to widwife today and she thinks show will come anytime. I'm 37+5 and it looks like I'm not going to make it to due date!!

I assume it washed away when my waters broke as I was pushing.

I had mine early in the morning labour started at 11pm-ish and ds was born at 1:10am
.With dd i didnt have one just faster labour!.

Everyone is different though so dont panic just yet smile

I had mine at 35 weeks and baby at 37 weeks! Sometimes early shows don't mean going into labour straight away.

27 hours. mine went with my waters going with my first contraction.

Marsy, your advice on my self-pitying overdue thread please...?

Charlie999 Tue 28-Aug-07 19:14:08

6 days - I was 37 + 4 when I had my show and 38 + 3 when DD came

CorrieDale Tue 28-Aug-07 19:14:23

MarsLady Tue 28-Aug-07 19:16:21

memmawizz Tue 28-Aug-07 19:29:35

As I suspected - just like everything else - everyone's different!!!

lizziemun Tue 28-Aug-07 20:38:27

Had a show at 6.30am and dd was born at 2.15pm the same day. So about 8hrs grin

helenelisabeth Tue 28-Aug-07 22:04:43

Roughly 10 hours! Good luck!

weeonion Tue 28-Aug-07 22:17:51
