Hi All- I'm currently at 39 weeks, cervix is soft and dilated 2 cms and had my bloody show Sunday night- which the doctor also confirmed at my appt Monday morning. He says the earliest I can go would be 2-3 days, but it's Thursday now and no signs of labor...just frequent contractions that are just uncomfortable- not painful. I'm getting extremely impatient, anxious, and physcially it's just getting VERY uncomfortable. Sorry to vent here...just wondering how soon after a bloody show did you ladies go into labor? Anyone else in the same boat as me?

Sounds like it wll be soon, but unfortunately there is no way to know for sure. I had frequent contractions and lost my mucus plug 2 days before I actually went into labor with my first. With my second I think I would have just kept dilating and probably never went into labor on my own. I started dilated at 35 weeks and by 38 weeks I was 5 cm with no real contractions, so they just induced me. Good luck , and I hope it is soon!

ahh i hope it is soon too!! after i posted this question in the AM, my back starting going on me.. I've been extremely achey in the back all day and I did have some cramping in the front earlier in the day...

It doesn't sound like it will be to long since you are already dilated. Try taking a nice long walk around the block or in a shopping center. To help ease some of the pain try taking a nice warm bath. and try sitting in different positions even belly side down only hold yourself up off the bottom of the tub. I think I am in the bathtub at least 2-4 times a day.

tiramisu, hopefully you had your baby by now!! I have been having what I think is bloody show all weekend. I also lost my mucus plug on friday. My due date was yesterday 07/01 so hopefully I'll go into labor soon.

Hi All! No baby yet!! Just got back from my doc and I am still fingertip dilated...I really thought the bloody show was a sure sign that I would go into labor right away..but obviously didn't happen for me. The doc said that I may see more of a bloody show as I keep thinning out and dilating. There is light at the end of the tunnel though.. If she doesnt come by my due date, I have an induction tentatively scheduled for next Thursday..I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I won't have to be induced though....

I lost mucous plug and then had my baby about 24 hours later.

I was in labour (early stage) when I had my bloody show. I started having contractions at 4am, and then had my bloody show at around 7-8am. Then my water broke at 9am. I am sure you will be in labour soon, or maybe you will need assistance to start contracting. BTW my bloody show happened in bits. It didn't all happen at once. I was having bloody show until about 11am.

Well..looks like I may be in labor right now.. I had some more bloody show this morning and now getting contractions 5 mins apart with extreme cramping in the back, belly...enough to my make my toes curl.. doc says to call back when the contractions are 3 mins apart.. what do you ladies think?
