For the last 3 days I've been losing just clear mucousy discharge and today I got this...could this be the "bloody show?" Since I've lost this I've been getting sharp pains down below and none stop back pain...how long after you lost this did you go into labour? Any advice helps thanks ladies ♡♡

Yeap its your bloody show based on the pains. Women get confused about actual bloody show. Bloody show occurs as your cervix starts to dilate from 3-10 cm during actual labor. It is the onset and you should start labor shortly after you see your blood show, if not already in labor.

I myself had hoped what I was seeing was my blood show, but unfortunately that wasn't the case :( I had mucusy discharge with brown blood. But no labor!

Anyway good luck hun! Sounds like you should be delivering soon

It can be common and normal to have diarrhea on the onset of labor (your body preparing) if your concerned you can always call your Dr. If your trying for a natural birth then I would hold off and avoid the hospital awhile. But its all in what you want. If ever in doubt a phone call doesn't hurt!
