So... Due date is in 2 days. And it wasnt looking like ANYTHING was happening, but about an hour ago I started to get my "bloody show." Yay! And its a pretty decent amount, sorry TMI. Hopefully that means something is going on soon!
How many of you have had your "show" and went into labor soon after that? What was your experience??? I also had some loose stools today... Signs of labor soon?
UPDATE: 8:42am: So last night I had a few nice sized globs of the bloody show, and I'm pretty sure I started feeling braxton hicks for the first time last night... Now I've been feeling them since about 7:06 and its 8:42 right now. They have been 3-7 minutes apart, lasting about 30-40 seconds, but not painful, just tight... I have a little back pain but not really much. Doesnt feel like back labor, but I dont know. What do you think?
UPDATE #2: 11:09pm: Went to hospital at around 11:30am, had consistent contractions about 3-5 minutes apart, but they aren't strong enought yet. I'm finally almost 2cm and 60% effaced as of about 2pm, so I am progressing. They almost admitted me but decided to send me home and let me see where it goes. Basically they think I'm in early labor and it should be soon. Still having contractions, some are painful, some are just tight, and anywhere from 4-10 min apart so it still might be a while. Nurse & Dr said I'm having pretty consistent contractions, they just need to be stronger to make some more progress, we'll see!
UPDATE #3: I'm still here and still pregnant!!! :eek: Well Ive been having contractions all night so got horrible sleep & I'm still getting them... Anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes apart. Theyre still just not strong enough yet. But they do feel stronger than b4, just not painful enough to go to the hospital. But its alright, I'm going in tonight to be induced anywayss yay! I'm just glad my body is "trying" to go into labor already because I was so afraid of being induced when my body wasnt ready yet and now i know that its trying to get ready at least. I'll try to update when I can tonight/tomorrow and post a pitcure. Wish me luck!!!
