    bloody show?

    I'm 39 weeks pregnant. Last night, I had what I think is the bloody show. I had lost most of the mucus plug a few weeks ago. It was globby and snotty looking but not blood-tinged. Around 3 AM this morning, I had discharge with flecks of blood in it. DH and I hadn't DTD in a couple of days and I haven't had much spotting with sex anyway and when it did happen, it was more pinkish discharge, not blood colored, and it's been since Monday at my last OB exam and I doubt it is from that (my doctor's internal exams are very gentle). The one time I spotted after my internal exam, it was also pinkish in color and that same day. I'm hoping maybe this is the start of something!

    I haven't been having regular contractions, just off/on BH contractions. I've been having more AF-like cramping and backaches (but all very mild, nothing to rush to the hospital about). I'm hoping, hoping, hoping this means labor will be around the corner.

    Does it sound like this could be the bloody show? For BTDT moms who experienced a bloody show, how long after the bloody show did labor begin?

    ooooohhh it sure sounds close!

    With me, I had a show at around 6am and I had my son at 9.20pm that same night. Good Luck, and I look forward to reading your birth story!!
