just wandering coz im 41+3 wks pg and still haven't had one i don't think. i have noticed some stringy discharge is that likely to be a show. it is not blood stained at all though. is it possible to not have a show until your labour or not have one at all.

also im going for an induction on monday, is there any chance ill go naturally before then. i haven't had any signs like bh's or any thing.

Hello 18mumtobe. Sounds a bit like the beginning of it to me. With my 1st, I had some stringy discharge about 12 hours before it all kicked off properly. I phoned the midwives, thinking it was the show and they said it was just my cervix softening up to get ready. In some senses it was, because although a huge gob of mucus (sorry too much information probably!) came out during the early part of labour when I was still at home before going to hospital, which was the proper show, what I saw 12 hours previously was a very small bit of what would be the show. That's how I saw it anyway. I think you could be on the way. Good luck!!

Didnt get one until in labour (at hospital)

My show started like yours and kind of leaked out over the course of a day. They thought it was my waters but after checking concluded it was a show. Wasn't blood stained until labour started after an internal at the hospital (checking the waters!). I had no 'plug' to speak of which is what made it difficult.
Good Luck.

my waters broke first (4am) then i had a show about half hour after waters went (dont really understand that you would think would be other way round?!) it was bloodstained, stringy, muscus and was gross! lol
