    Default 'Show'

    Hi girls, TMI warning...

    I noticed some discharge today, it was kinda thick and a bit green - could it be the start of my show or is it too early and does the show come out all at once? It was only a very small amount, say enough to thinly cover a 5 cent piece (yukkkkk).

    Thanks!

    Jess

    Hi Jess,

    I only had a show with my first bub so can only remember it from 13 years ago. I had quite a few slimy shows for the whole evening and the following day I went into labour. Fingers crossed that it starts soon but not too soon for you.

    Take care
    Trish

    Personally I would get to the hospital or call your midwife. Sounds like a show but if its green bubs maybe in distress. I had a show thick and clear and as someone put it (I think Kelly smells like semen) 5 days before my water broke.

    Oooh Jess, I hope this is a good sign! Let us know if you get any more, or if you find out this is the real thing. I have no idea what to be looking for, but it sounds promising!

    They say it's about a teaspoon but the show doesn't have to come away in one go, sometimes it can take days. So maybe there is more to come yet?
    The green I find a bit odd too... they say if your amniotic fluid is green to immediately go to the hospital because it means the baby is in distress but never heard of a green show?
    Maybe talk to your midwife and see what she thinks.

    Mine was most definitely more than a teaspoon and not green at all. It was very gooey and blood-streaked but I didn't lose mine until I was actually in labour in the hospital!
