Ack! And gross! So much mucus and now bloody show...

How long, typically, experienced mamas, before some labor action starts now? I have some low down in my abdomen crampiness and keep feeling like I have to pee, but that's about it for the moment...

Do I probably have hours, days, weeks???

I didn't have ANYTHING until I was 5 cm dilated, so it can vary.

I never had bloody show until I was in active labor and only with ds. Now I did loose my plug the week before with both kids but it was pure cottony white.

My plug has been sloooowwwwlllyyyyyy coming out for weeks now but yesterday it was all ewww globby but it was yellowish and when I had clear mucus it was tinged with orangey red streaks. but I lost the clear one maybe 3 weeks ago!!!! I do think it shows your body prepareing but everyone is different and it could be hours or like me weeks

Don't take this the wrong way, but I hope this isn't me...I don't think I could handle the suspense of it.

Cellist, labor vibes.

It is obnoxious! I have that and LOTS of contractions that dwindle out I am going nuts!!!! My only thing keeping me sane is that I am praying that all this will lead to a fast labor and birth like it did with Ds!
