    I need mulitple votes lol

    Kameron - after being induced and well into labour, but before waters were broken

    Lachlan - 37wks 6 days after an internal. Started that night and got really bloody next morning. Spoke to midwife who said it sounded like the show, but if it continued to go in. It didn't continue and I was induced 3 days later.

    I didn't see my show until straight after my waters were broken, well into labour. Ob was trying to hurry things along as it was a long labour.

    Pee,

    Sometimes the show / mucous plug can be blood-stained but to be honest, to me it more looks like a huuuge lot of semen LMAO... some women actually get confused with it if they have sex late in pregnancy.

    So I need to look for funky coloured lumps of semen!! LOL
    I will keep my eye out then...

    There is none of that happening atm due to pelvic and hip pain so I am pretty sure I will notice! Thanks for the info Kelly!!

    (BTW I like all the new avatars!! The ladies are keeping you busy with all these changes arent they!!)

    ok...for me it was on my due date which wss 14 days before induction... and as we were trying to hurry along labour naturally... I wasn't sure if it was or not, but mine was bloody and mucousy (TMI) for around 12 hours.

    mine came 2 days before i had josh, and as soon as it came was when i slowly started to dilate, mine looked like a massive amount of seamen come to think of it, but with a few blood streaks in it aswell

    KeenAs........the "show" is when the mucus plug that prevents infectiosn getting into the cervix that is plugging theneck of hte cervix comes away through the vagina late in pregnancy: usually around when labour starts/when your waters break............
