    I think I have had a show this morning. I have read loads on here about them but now I can't remember a thing I've read! Can someone tell me:

    What it looks like?
    What it means?
    When it happens?

    Thanks girls!!

    hi hun,

    it can look all sorts of things, sometimes green, sometimes, reddy pink, sometimes, clear, it will feel like snot or jelly, altho sometimes it can be watery.

    if it is your show then it means your cervix is softening and getting ready for birth, but it can take another 2 weeks before you go in to labour.

    best of luck hun

    xx

    Mine was like clear jelly at first, then every couple of days after that it'd be a bit blood streaked.
    I always got more after I went for a long walk or was very active.

    Hi Kim,

    I had the same thing on monday night. Saw my midwife on tuesday but she seemed to think i must have an infection and sent a swab to the hospital. She just told me it was a bit early for me. You are due soon though so it could be yours :)

    my midwife did ask if i was having any tightenings with it though - so i don't know if that makes a difference :?

    I've not had any tightenings, I don't even know if I have had BH's before I thought I did at about 23 weeks but none since :? :? :?

    me too - i don't know what to expect with them! sometimes i think i'm having them but then i don't know if it is just the baby moving - you know when it feels tight?

    i was having some stabbing pains and crampy pains on wed but that seems to have passed - do you think these are stretching pains? :?

    Ring the midwife and ask her advice, with you still having 7 weeks to go they might want to take you in and check you over.
