  • The baby comes when he's ready. I was very late with both my girls and I'm expecting the same with this pregnancy. I know that it is frustrating...but in the end it's worth it!! Good luck.

  • I dont know from experience because I never saw my bloody show with my first but I heard that usually labor starts within the next 24 to 48 hours. GOOD LUCK!!!! Start walking a lot maybe that will help you get things going.

  • I believe bloody show means within 1-2 weeks. It's the mucous plug you should keep an eye open for. If you see a gelatinous thing in your toilet or underwear, you've got less than 2 days left usually.

  • Yeah, momma shuler is right. 1-2 weeks usually, but since you're already overdue, maybe...hopefully sooner...Good Luck and God Bless

  • Good to know....I'm expecting my first and no one has told me anything about bloody show. Glad I read about it here, I would have flipped out had it happened without me hearing about it first!

  • i had my son 4 days after i saw mine.
    i would just give your baby more time. you don't have to go through w/ the induction. induction should only be used if medically necessary, and there are very few TRUE medical reasons for induction.
