i'm 40wks today and had a little bit of blood midwife said i should look out for that and its a good sign. i have had a couple of shows and this is my third but the only one with blood in it. how long do u think it will be. is there a certain amount of time when you have the blood till u go into labour. what can i do to help it along. we have tried all the things ie sex, walks, pinapple, ect dont like curry so dont want to try that really. is it just a waiting game. can anyone help me
How long is a piece of string? I don't think there's a timetable for labour - but it sounds as though your body is getting ready so I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
With my first, I never had a show. My waters went on the Friday and I eventually gave birth on the Sunday after being induced. With my second, I had a show on the morning as my contractions started, and baby arrived before 2pm.
I went to 42 weeks and had to be induced; nothing helped bring on labour but I tried taking raspberry leaf, both as tea and supplement, for about 12 days before induction - it might not have brought labour on but it might have helped speed up stage 2! Read my blog about it here if you're interested.
