Bloody show and other pre labor signs

Hi ladies, my name is Amanda and I am 38 weeks 2 days pregnant with my third. I never experienced any of this with my first two so I don't really have anything to go by other than what I read. Monday afternoon I had the bloody show then last night, Tuesday, I started to get really nauseas, threw up once and shortly after had two bouts of diarrhea. I know all of these are or can be signs that signal labor will be starting soon. My question is with all these things happening so close together is it likely that I will go into labor in the next day or two? Or have many of you experienced things such as this and still went another week or two before going into labor? Thank you in advance for any answers.

Well with my 3rd it all hit me within 24 hours, bloody show, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea early in the day, then my water broke in the afternoon once contractions had already started. :). Best of luck I was 39 w 6 days.

My first two I had nothing. My third for 5-8 weeks I had everything under the sun. I had diarrhea for 8 weeks, for 5 weeks I had big, small pieces of my mucus plug and some with blood and sometimes none, I had contractions for 8 weeks(5 times I thought I was in labor for it all to stop 5-12 hours later) and so much more.

There is no way of knowing at all. Just have to wait and see what happens.

So according to everything I've read about bloody show in particular, it all says that most women will go into labor within a week of having bloody show. Considering that this afternoon will be exactly one week since I had mine, it looks like I won't be in luck and I'll be one of the ones that passes that one week mark :( guess I'll just have to wait it out. I will update when baby does finally come along

I haven't had a bloody show but i've had horrible diarrhea type cramping that makes me stop and sometimes takes my breath, but if I go to the bathroom the are relieved. I have had days where I have diarrhea. Yesterday I had those bad cramps and was sweaty but soon as I got home it all stopped. I haven't had any consistent contractions yet tho.
