No bloody show too? How far along are you? Hope labor starts for you soon. :)

I never had blood show or lost my plug till I was already in labor.

First baby.... Pushed my plug out with the first push to deliver her. No bloody show. Had her at 41w3d

Second baby... Labor began 10 hours after I lost my plug, had blood show right as labor began. Born at 41w1d

Third baby... No bloody show, lost plug in chunks starting at 33 weeks. Born on due date

This baby...have been losing my plug since 31 weeks, I am 37 weeks now and no sign of labor anytime soon.

Ha I am 36 weeks 2 days. I am just asking because I went into the hospital for contractions every 3 minutes. Was told it was early labor and to go home and relax. The next night lost my mucus plug and had bloody show and every once in a while will have another large part of mucus come out (sorry tmi) and sometimes a little pink along with that. This is my third baby and I don't remember with my first and think with my second it was around a week and I went into labor. Wanted to know others experience :)

LOL this is my first experience with regards to losing a mucus plug. Never lost it with my first two. And I was induced with them. I am hoping I go into labor on my own this time before the c section date. My doc says if I do she will let me try naturally.

They happened at the same time for me. I was sleeping and a contraction woke me up, and when it was over I went to the bathroom and was treated to some mucus and blood :P Although I guess I wasn't in active labor yet, but my contractions were regular and timeable right from the start.
