What do you mean by bloody show? When you get contractions and the water breaks or loose the plug do you bleed? Sorry I am 18 weeks with my 1st and was wondering about the bloody show comments i keep reading in your posts.

Bloody show is what happens when you lose your mucus plug. That usually doens't happen until late in your third trimester. The mucus plug is what blocks the opening of the cervix and when you start to dilate, the plug falls out. It's bloody tinged so when it comes out it is pretty gross! I'm 38 weeks, but haven't lost mine yet. My dr told me that some woman don't even know if they lose it. But, my friend saw the whole thing come out and said it was disgusting, so probably better I didn't see :) But, who knows I could lose it before delivery. Good luck and Congratuations!
