With DD2 I had mine then about 18hrs of sporadic contractions then went in to get checked and still no change so the doc broke my water and she was born 6hrs later.

I lost mine 2 weeks before I went into labor. While it's a good sign, it could be weeks, days, or hours...no one knows. It's not really a conclusive thing like water breaking.

Mucus Plug or Blood show. They are two different things. Bloody show happened during labor. Mucus Plug 4-7 days prior to delivery with each!

yes, once you lose the bloody show it usually comes less than a day after. i don't know about irregular contractions. with my first baby i got the bloody show and my water broke about 4 hours later.

Yeap thats would be it HAHA. Your body loses that as you start to thin and dialate 1-3 cm. And your body constantly reproduces it. So some women can lose it week prior to labor, others it will be right before. Normally from my experience and research bloody show occurs also due to dilation but that is normally farther into labor 3 cm-10cm!! And is a good sign delivery will happen in 24 hrs or so!
