    Default How long after your 'show' did you go into labour?

    Just interested in peoples experiences, as I'm told this can vary quite a bit.

    There is a poll on this, will check out the poll archive...

    With my first I never saw it until my waters were broken, and second, it slowly came away over a few days and the majority of it was in early labour. Elijah was born 10am next day.

    I didn't notice my show at all with Aidyn.... my waters broke, then I was induced... so it must have come out sometime after then?

    Didn't know with Nyah, as waters didn't break she came out with everything.

    With William, I had pre-labor and show for two weeks.

    Not long to go now sweetheart- good luck darlin'. O

    I didn't have a show or my waters didn't break. Literally I had a contraction followed by another 12 hours of contractions and pushing!! The Dr broke my waters somewhere in between.

    I had my show 10 days before my waters broke and Kaleb was born.

    2 days before, but it wasn't a huge amount, just enough to notice, DD then made her appearance on her due date.

    DS was induced on his due date and never had a show beforehand.

    I had a small amount of show after having my membranes swept about 6 days before labour, but the full plug didn't come out till during labour. My gf had show about 3 hours before her waters broke, and then labour started.

    I got my show the day after I had 3 doses of prostin gel (I was induced). My waters were broken 3 days later then I went into "labour". Don't ask me what the previous 5 days of being in agony were about. Apparently that wasn't really labour at all :roll: Felt the same imo!

    I had a show 2days before I had DD. I wasnt exactly sure if it was or not as it wasnt a lot. Dr told me that most likely it was but told me I was not likely to give birth soon. Next day I gave birth 3 weeks early to EDD. The dr was definantly surprised to see me.

    Not long left for you, hope everything goes well. Enjoy your new addition to the family when they arrive.

    Love Helen

    I got my show about term + 7 days, and it continued until I was induced at term + 11 days. The biggest chunk (sounds gross but thats what it looked like ) came about term + 9 days.
