Last night I started to have this so-called bloody-show and then a ton more this morning (gobs and gobs of it--ick!)... all night I had menstrual-like cramps and a back-ache.... and I am SOOOO hungry and SOOOO thirsty! How long did it take for you to go into labor after your bloody show?

Saw this on new posts.<br><br>
If it's true bloody show labour and/or baby should be within 4 hours. I googled it when I got it with DD2. She was born, I think, 36 hours after I posted on here moaning about it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

With my first, this happend in early labor....with my second, a full TWO WEEKS before hand.<br>
owever, since this is your first, and you are cramping also, I have a hunch that for you, it will probably be soon...the point is just that each of us do it a bit differently, so there is no way of knowing for sure. best wishes !

No help here, I didn't get bloody show until I was well into active labor. I didn't realize people got it before then!
