    I lost mine this morning! am hoping things are gonna get moving maybe tonight or in the next few days!!

    there was heaps it was very similar to what semen looks like ( no smell or blood ) just the yellowy/white colour like Pee mentioned above had to wipe three times before there was no more on the toilet paper ( sorry for too much info but it happened after i went to the toilet for a wee i felt wet and went and checked things out when i wiped there was my show )

    I had mine at 37 weeks and then again at 39 weeks(dunno why i had two 8-[ )and now i'm 1 day overdue! Not much of a sign that labor is coming if you ask me! Mine was like a huge blob of mucus with a hint of blood in it(both times)...Very gross!

    I felt funny at some ridiculous time of the morning and stood to go to the loo and "plop" my show fell out on the floor on the way to the loo. That was 1 hour before my first pang of labour pain. My baby was born 10 hours later! Yep - I agree - looks like a big goober!

    With Mason the show came out when I sat on the loo. I just kept dripping. I thought it might have been the waters as they said at the pre natal class that it can leak slowly sometimes. He was born 9 1/2 hours later.

    With Angus I didn't see the show until I was in very active labour in the bath. I saw blood floating in a blob in the water. The midwife said oh thats a little show. Then the waters exploded and I had to get out of the bath and in two pushed Angus was out!
    I was told to wait for the show before coming in to the hospital but if I did then Angus would have been born in the driveway!

    My show started about 8 days after my due date, and continued for the 3 days before I was induced. It was a bit like the end of my period, but every so often had a couple of big snotty globs in it.

    I reckon this was the most gross part of the whole experience (that and getting the catheter inserted... 8-[ ).
    I saw a bit of show after 2 doses of prostin gel to induce labour then, after a 3rd dose of gel, I saw what looked like a big goober of snot on the tp. Ewww! It smelled hideous too and it made me gag. Urrgh! Still, I was happy to see it because it meant that the gel was doing more than just putting me under excrutiating pain!

    I had 2 shows. the first was about 5 days before my waters broke. It was like a giant lump of snot. The second was the night before I went into labour and it was clear mucus on the loo paper with little flecks of bright red blood in it.
