    Hey ladies, hope you're all well! :)

    I was just wondering, for you ladies who have had your lovely lo's, when you had your show (if you had one) roughly how long after did you go into labour?

    I had my 2nd sweep yesterday, first being unsuccessful as she couldn't reach my cervix, and I started losing my plug last night and today it has got a lot thicker and more bloody so I'm assuming this is my show? Getting the odd cramp and back ache and lots of bh but nothing significant :/ also was 1cm dilated when I had it done.

    Guess I'm just wanting to hear some sweep success stories as I'm really hoping to avoid being induced! So does it sound promising or am I just getting my hopes up? xx

    Thanks for the reply princess :) I'm not so sure mine is a gradual loss as I've had a fair amount today and its still coming (tmi sorry!)

    Cramps and tightenings have gotten worse as well so fingers xd this is the start! Induction on friday if nothing before, hoping it won't come to that though :) xx

    I didn't lose mine until my waters broke and then everything went, all over my carpet!

    I never had a show! I lost tons of clear mucous all day on the Saturday, went into labour early hours of Sunday morning & had Jack on Monday night. If I had one during labour I didn't see it x

    I've had my little girl! Gracie seren was born on the 28th at 9.57 pm. I did end up having to be induced on the friday, was in labour for 9 hours but only had to push for 17 minutes thanks to the amazing midwife who delivered her, she was like a drill sergeant!! I am smitten! :D thank you ladies xx

    I never had a show or lost my plug. I thought my waters went but told it wasn't. A few hours later contractions started. 6 hours from start of contractions, Joshua was born.

    Massive congrats!xx
