"Yes, gentlemen, looks like we've got bloody show!"

"Bloody show? What bloody show?"

"Bloody good show all around if it means we're going into labor soon!"

Yep yep... pink TP. Whee! How exciting!

Aw, good for you! I have been obsessively checking TP but all I see is random globs of clear/white mucus. I still take it as a positive but I would rather see a little bloody show for good measure.

We are all so silly...we cant wait for pain and blood. Two things most sane people try to avoid.

Lucky! I'm a compulsive tp checker, too, and I don't have a single bit of mucus, pink or white, to show for it! :P

Thanks for the thumbs and vibes!

I had some fairly regular, sorta-uncomfortable BH contractions for a long time yesterday evening, which picked up when we went on a walk, but still let me get a whole night's sleep. We went for another walk today, and they picked up again with the activity. Then a couple hours after getting home, I keep getting trickles of pink-tinged mucous, and the contractions are getting a little more noticeable, though they're not really messing with my day yet or anything.

Only time will tell! But now I'm thinking baby might have an April 21st or 22nd birthday... wouldn't Earth Day be a fun one?

Good luck mama! I hope something happens soon!

I had bloody show last night too but nothing consistent has happened. This baby is a pro at making me wait!

Ok, contractions are annoying enough that I gave up on sleep after only dozing for the last hour or so. They're still pretty far apart and short, but definitely REAL. Really really real!

Whee! Now I just have to figure out if I'm going to make it to my doctor's appointment at 10:30 tomorrow ;-). I could go, knowing that he might urge me to head right over to the hossie... I could skip, knowing I'll probably see him later tomorrow anyway... or I could decide it's time to go get admitted before my appointment time anyway. ;-)
