Exactly that ladies! How long after your show did you go into labour?

Baby has definitely dropped as well comparing photos from today and yesterday.

Hoping you're all going to tell me if wasn't forever lol. First baby so unsure

Sorry pressed send before finished!!! About 7 hours with first, 5 hours after second and didn’t have a show with third. Good luck 😉 🙏♥️

A couple of hours. Couldn’t say for sure but the pains came steadily over next few hours after show and then quick-ish labour.

I'll be an odd one here I think. I was already in full labour before I got my show.
I got it when the midwife was checking to see how far along I was (20 minutes from birth)

I lost mine really slowly over several days, started on the Sunday went into labour on the Friday!

Started on the Sunday evening, more through the day Monday, labour began Monday night, baby born Tuesday night!

Good luck grin

Thanks ladies! I got the show late yesterday and think I've had mild contractions since but not enough for them to be painful

Baby has really dropped this afternoon giving me an urge to pee all the time even if I don't need to go!

Fingers crossed he makes his appearance soon! 😬

Any news yet OP?

Nothing yet I'm afraid! Back twinges coming and going but no water break or consistent contractions! Think he's going to keep us waiting! 🤦🏽‍♀️

Going to try and use the ball as much as I can today

I lost mine across 2 days after a sweep and was in labour by the end of the second day xx

Im probably an odd one out, but 2 weeks! I only noticed a show with my 2nd, had it confirmed in hospital as there was more blood than i expected so went in to be checked out. Was sent home and told baby would arrive within days as was 2cm dilated. Two weeks and several false starts later....

@Hatepickinganame I think this might be me too! All the other signs have stopped sad

I felt soooo energetic yesterday but today I feel like I've been hit by an actual bus and all the twinges etc have disappeared. Feeling slightly disappointed tbh! 😓
