    I went into labour on the Sunday night, then started to lose the show on Monday morning (which was quite exciting as I knew it was really happening then!). Had Lucy Tuesday night.

    Xander-had it the day before, was induced the next day. Labour wasnt progressing on its own.
    Declan-never saw it, was induced too.
    Anneliese-Had it at 25w, at 30w contracted an infection due to having a bath with no plug. Had emergency c/s

    This is a great thread, even if a bit TMI in some parts...hehe!

    Anyway, yesterday & this morning I've had what sounds similar to some others in here...the clear/yellowish goober like stuff coming out and I'm thinking that it must be my plug!!!! I'm 38.5 weeks along and have been having some crampy pains (but not regular) over the last week also... Does it sound like I'm getting close?!?!

    Also, should you phone the hospital or OB when you loose the plug or just wait for labour? I have no clue?! Thanks!

    Towards the end of pregnancy an increase in progesterone production results in more mucus - the sticky slippery /cloudy type. The show is more like EWCM and can have streaks of brown or red in it, so it may just be mucus.

    Sherie I had no clue either! I lost mine around lunchtime and like you had had pains on and off for ages. About 12hours later I lost a gush of what I thought was more mucous, but now I'm aware it was my water breaking! :eek: I had pain on and off for two days after that, but it wasn't bad enough for me to feel I needed to tell anyone, so I never thoguht to. I saw the ob on the thrid day and had heer late the next night - It can never hurt to ring and ask is the moral of the story! I had to have a thousand antibiotics because I had been in labour so long with little fluid for her.

    Unhappy The Show

    I am 39 weeks pregnant and im pretty sure i had the show in the evening on the 6th of Novemeber, but still nothing has really happened... i have had contractions here and there but nothing solid...i have done the long fast walks and drank the tea... i was wondering if there was anyone on this forum who had a show but didnt go into labour until more than a week? or if it means anything?

    I had the show just before i went into Hospital i was in labour and i called the hospital to see if i should come in and they said yes! I went to the toilet and thats when i had the show, so i knew things were going to start soon and omg did they, luckily it the worst of it was in Hospital. I got to the hospital and they took care of me after 12 hrs of labour i had my beautiful little girl Tayneesha. I was 2 days off being 40 weeks pregnant when i had my show.

    I had a 72 hour labour, and I *think* I saw mine on the second day. It's all a bit of a blur until I got to the hospital and the gas which was the day I had her!

    In any event, there was no mistaking it. It was like a pinky colour and like was definately like ewcm, but I'd say thicker and I was surprised by how much of it there was.

    I was loosing bits and pieces of my plug for about 2-3 weeks prior to labour, but lost the rest in a big chunk (about enough to fill a teaspoon) on Tuesday at 4pm and had contractions for several hours afterwards. Wednesday was a quiet day with no contractions at all but then 2am Thursday (today) my waters broke.
