How soon after bloody show did you go into labor? - Page 2

post #21 of 32
I had bloody show right when the first real labor ctx started. They were 2-3 min apart and stayed that way until I was holding my baby 21 hours later. So mine coincided with the start of labor.

I didn't have any bloody show until just before pushing DD out.

With both of my daughters, I had bloody show AFTER labor started. Contractions for about 3 hours, bloody show, then birth 2-3 hours afterward.

So I'm of no help! But, I did clean like a demon with both kids... to the point that anything small (shadow boxes, vents, etc) got cleaned with q-tips!

It's so different for everyone. I didn't lose the plug until right before transition both times. And my water didin't break until then either. I was cleaning like a maniac, scrubbing floors, etc from week 38 on, and no labor til 41 weeks.

Here's hoping that for you all of your signs are the beginning of a succesful labor!

6 days!!! I was so frustrated because I thought for sure labor would start soon. It didn't. This was a second pregnancy and I had 3 weeks of false labor (not solid 3 weeks, but on again/off again...just enough so I couldn't sleep well).

When I finally went into labor, I didn't believe it and kept working. I was taking care of a labor patient on my OB floor when I finally realized it was real labor and had to excuse myself, first for a "break" while I went to triage, and second, for good for a leave of absence I did find someone to replace me as a nurse first

For me it was anywhere from 1-3 weeks. Every woman as well as pregnancy is different. In my 3rd pregnancy I never had any show.

I was 5cm dialated before I saw any blood, in ACTIVE labor. DD was born 3 hours later.
