    Default Bloody Show at 40 Weeks, How Much Long to Go?

    I am 40 wk 1 day and this morning noticed a drop of blood after going to the toilet and have also had a light brown discharge. I was a little excited because I think it is a sign that labour is near. How long can I expect to go into labour? Just wondering also how much long people had to wait till labour started after a show.

    With my first I never even had a show (or noticed it) and with my second I had a show and my daughter was born within 3 hours.

    I'm not really sure what the books would say but I do have a friend who had hers over a weeks before baby was born.

    Good luck - hopefully you won't have to wait too much longer

    are you getting any small niggling pains?

    mine have all been different, some right before birth, one 4 weeks before, one a few hours before bub was born..

    if you start getting slight little pains, then i'd say not long now..

    good luck

    I had some more 'show' tonight and felt bad period pain. The pain would come and go every 15 minutes. I hope this is a sign that it wont be too long.

    Hi all

    Just thought I'd let you know that I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on June 11. Her name is Caitlin Rose. It was the following day after my post that I went into labour. It was a difficult labour and I was a little frustrated because I called the hospital 4 times to say that I was in labour but was told that I was having pre labour pains and to call back later but was finally told to come to hospital to be checked the last time I called. She was delivered by emergency c-section because her heart beat at one stage was dropping during labour. She is healthy and well now and we are all so happy to have her. It was all worth it in the end.
