Bloody show....much longer to wait?


I had a sweep 2 days ago which didn't really do anything despite my best efforts.

Took myself out a walk today and came home to find a decent amount of brown streaked 'show' in my underwear. What are the chances that things will kick off soon?

Well I had loads of bloody show sunday evening and been having it for the past few days with lots of cramping but it gets strong then just stops! Don't know what my body is doing! After my show with my other 2 children I had them the next day! X

Thanks for the reply. I didn't get a show with my last pregnancy. All I seem to have developed since it started is bad wind

Oooh that's great! Seeing as you're overdue I'd say it's a great sign things may happen...hopefully tomorrow?!!! I've had no show boohooo

From what I have read it really varies, but hopefully it means things will get going soon since you're almost at 41 weeks already.

Fingers crossed things happen for you. I didn't get a show with my first, but....she didn't engage or anything. She made no effort to evict herself. She's still just as st born now

I've read mixed results too. I think I'm just holding on to that glimmer of hope that this time round things will happen on their own and I won't need to go through being induced like last time xx

I feel you on this! ALL my kids have had to be coaxed out. For this reason, I have no clue about bloody show since I've never had it. My kids did nothing -- NOTHING -- on their own. Like you, I'm hoping this one will make an effort. I'm only 39 weeks, so not where you are yet, but none of my babes have made an appearance before 41 weeks. One was 16 freakin' days overdue! (And massive.) NEVER again.

I really really really want to avoid induction but I think I need to accept it's gonna happen! The bad cramps today and lower backache had me hopeful that tomorrow could be the day but I don't wanna get my hopes up. Why are babies so lazy

Just remember all the prelabor is doing something (thinning and dilating your cervix) I had a tonne of pre labor with my second and I was 5cm and 100% before I even went into labor and the my 3rd I was 3cm and 75% effaced at 37 weeks before I was induced due to complications so try and think of it as a good thing rather than a disappointing thing and that your body is doing half of the hard work before labor even starts
