    is it that labour usually starts? I went the toilet earlier this evening and I had some brownish discharge in my underwear. Does anyone think this is a show? How much blood/brownish discharge is there usually in a show? Does labour usually happen shortly after this? I've been having more regular BH and tigtening of the stomach for the past few days. What do you guys think??

    Thanks in advance. xx

    It can be anything from a few hours to a few weeks hun. Not sure if it was your show I had some brown spotting last Sunday and then lost a lump of jelly stuff on Tuesday but am still waiting too. Perhaps it could be the start of something for you. Good Luck! :hug: xxxx

    I had my show at 38wks, but still had to get induced and Arianna arrived 13 days late

    You'll know when it's your show... it's not just some CM in your underwear it comes out as a big blob.... only way I can describe it is pinkish snot - not nice!! :puke:

    I didn't have the bloody show until in labour (I think.. :think: ) but started losing my mucus plug (yummy!) 5 days before I went into labour.

    Thanks for all your replies. Just to update you: I've still not had my baby.
    I had contractions last night that came every 15 minutes but they were not very painful at all, just a tightening of the stomach and a little bit of pain in my pelvis region, then when in bed last night, I woke at 3.15am with really severe back ache and pains all around my tummy. I thought it might have been the real thing but tried to go back to sleep. I woke every hour with the same pain but when I evetually got up today, they had died down a bit. As it stands now, I'm just getting a lot of back ache and the occassional abdominal pain/tightening.

    I know my bump rightfully could be another 3 weeks but I'm getiin gso impatient to meet my son.

    How much longer????????????? :(
