Iam trying to figure a few things out for myself. My MW said i need to come in when I have either a show or have regular contractions. Now i have never had a show, i have absolutely no discharge to mention, but i have had very regular close together contractions that turned out being nothing?
did you have a show before propper labour started or your water broke?

Did you have a show before full labour started or your water broke?

I have never had a show, and my contractions were well and truely in full swing before my waters broke. Both times I went into labour I didn't actually think it was the real thing, but I rang the hospital and they wanted me to get seen anyway- both times I left with a baby.

If you aren't sure, give the midwives a call.

Sounds like pre-labour hun. I had it
For a month before my second was born- contractions would start, last a couple of hours then stop. Same thing is happening this time. If they are not changing in frequency or intensity I would stay home, but still let the hospital know. The second they start changing I would be heading up. Unfortunately there might not be any 'sign' that it is the real thing so it's always better to be safe then sorry.

I lost my plug (is that a show??) a week before bub came and my waters broke a couple of hours before I went into labour. Probably won't help you as everything happens in different orders for people!

Neither, both my labours started with contractions and i was in full labour without having a show or water break.
