On the 7th of December, I had my bloody show...I was having contractions and 1cm dilated...The cramping has gotten worse, and I'm losing my mucus plug in HUGE globs.. I'm having a ton of lower back pain..Im so fatigued I can't stand it..
I'm moody & basically, just want to have this baby soon..Since I'm due next friday.

How soon after you lost your mucus plug & had your bloody show, did you go into labor?

  • The lower back pain is a great sign! In fact, all your signs are pointing out that labor is almost (or already!) upon you. :) Hang in there!!

    You don't want to hear my story...with my first, I lost my mucous plug at 38 weeks, had bloody show at 39, and didn't have my baby girl until 40-1/2. :-P But every woman is different, and with all of those symptoms happening to you at once hon, I bet your baby is going to be here VERY soon!!

  • it was a week with my first and i dont remember losing it with my second. my second delivery really surpised me as i had no signs of it happening...just woke up early/late one day and was contracting.

  • I wish I had more useful info- but I just lost my plug yesterday and I was due the 9th! There is really no telling when you wil go into labor but every sign is a good sign that things are moving along:)

  • I lost my mucus plug the day I went into labor. You don't have bloody show usually till after ur water breaks. Thats what happened to me.
