Bloody show and no labor?

So last week I was sent to the hospital because I was having my bloody show and contractions 10-15 minutes apart. My cervix hadnt changed (from 3 cm) so they gave me a sleeping pill and sent me home expecting to see me again soon. But I never got back into the swing of things and my show stopped. Is this normal? Anyone had their bloody show and not go directly into labor? If so, how long was it before labor started?

  • With my first I had it for a week before, with my second it was like an hour or so later and I was in labor.

  • I wouldn't worry about it. walk a lot up and down stair and relax, you will go into labor sooner than later.

  • With my first it was a week prior as well. The other 3 pregnancies I never saw it(I was induced with 2 of them).
