I am 39 weeks and have had some show over the past 36hours. I was just wondering what other's experiances are when it comes to how soon after they had show at this stage of the game they went into labour. Everyone I have talked to so far has said only 3-4 days. I don't know about if there has been any dialation or effacement. OB hasn't checked yet.

Oh yeah I also have had some cramps and lots of BH...extra back pain and baby is much lower than he was 2 weeks ago.

I went for an NST that showed contractions. I was 3 cm at that point and went home to wait it out. That night I had show. The next day I went in for my scheduled induction to find out I was 5 cm. and in labor. I wish you the best.

I had my show at 1 AM May 8 and went into active labor at 4 AM May 9. I was in early labor right around the time my show occurred, but it wasn't hard to deal with.

I'm 38 weeks and I lost my plug early Saturday morning. I got really excited because I was sure labor would be right around the corner. However, here I am 5 days later (and counting) and still very preggo. Hoping that I will still go sometime this week...

Yeah...Still pregnant...still waiting...still peeing every 15 minutes. Been a week since show started...still having some...still frustrated with waiting. Now to make it worse I am getting a cold. Due on Tuesday...Hopefully soon.

When you lose your plug, labour can start within that day or it could be weeks..I know that's not the answer you want to hear but just enjoy this time while it's here..relax it will happen
