<p>I'll be 39 weeks tomorrow. Yesterday morning I saw a bit of pink tinged mucous when I wiped. This morning I had more and I may have passed the mucous plug or some bloody show in the middle of the night - was quite sleepy. A few websites stated that bloody show is a pretty reliable indication that labor is within a couple of days. What do you ladies think?</p>

<p>well, when I lose my mucous plug labour starts in a few hours. But my SIL, she loses her and labour starts within a week. So hopefully for you, that is the case! ELV for you when it starts!</p>

<p>More bloody show this morning - only in the mornings. Still waiting for something more to happen.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>With my first son, my water broke and I started having bloody show. Labor slowly began shortly after but since I was GBS+ and delivering in a hospital setting, there wasn't a wait and see option. So with pit augmentation, my son was born about 24 hours later.</p>
