    Yeah with DS2 I had bloody show for 3-4 days before I had him. I had a sweep on a Friday and went into labor Monday night and was holding him that Tuesday morning. With DS1 I don't remember having bloody show but I was induced with him. But DS2, my natural labor, I had bloody show with. I have seriously been waiting for this sign! Though it comes and goes, it always comes back a little bit heavier.

    Thinking good thoughts for you! Sorry I'm so late to the party, we were out of town the first week of the new year and I've been scrambling to catch back up. I was reading through your lodge but not posting cause it was from my phone. I'm getting so excited for you!!!! You look AMAZING btw!

    Thank you Christa!

    Update on me:
    So, one of my midwives was down this way and she offered to stop by and do a check so I had her go ahead and do one, as soon as she walked in the door and looked at me she told me I wouldn't be much longer, she had a hard time finding my cervix because it was so soft it would just melt away but when she finally found it she said I was a 3+ now and she could manually dilate me further, still only 80% effaced though. She said she figures I will probably go into labor tonight. I hope so but we will see because I know that women can be further than I am and sit there for a couple weeks. I guess we will see though.

    oooooo, you are getting so close! Of course, if you're still pregnant next week, that's okay too, I can take it

    How are you feeling today?

    Still pregnant. I had another round of contractions last night 8-10 minutes apart lasting about a minute long but around 3 they died down. They were strong enough to rock through and some I even moaned through a little bit. My midwife suggested a warm bath and taking a benadryl to get some more rest. I have taken the bath and I am still having some contractions even after that. I think this is just turning out to be a really long early labor stage. She also said if I make it to my appointment Friday and I am around 5cm dilated with a bulging bag she would offer breaking my water. If I am to that point and continue contracting like I am I might take her up on that offer. We will see though. I am really hoping I don't make it to my appointment with the way I have been feeling though. Oh and bloody show is still continuing and each day gets a little more bloody. Still nothing alarming though. I only get a little on my liner that I have in.

    (end lurking...)

    Agreed! Rest as much as you can! My biggest regret with my DD's birth was that I was so anxious to get going before my looming deadline that I stayed up really late the night before hoping to encourage early labor contractions to turn into the real thing...big mistake. I ended up going about 40 hours with very little sleep by the time she was born, and exhaustion was my biggest problem.

    If there is a next time, I will be sleeping and resting as long as it it possible for me to lie down!

    Good luck...
