The 'show'

Nov 14th, 2006, 15:33 PM   #1
 
hi

when you have a show is it always tinged with blood or can it just be like a clear jelly when you wipe?

I have just had what I can only describe as above and also had a really bad back since 4:30 am (couldnt sleep) felt quite a bit sick and had a couple of pains, so was just wondering whether I could have just had the show (I am due at the end of the week)

Thanks

i never had a show but my friend did and she described hers as light pink jelly like. Maybe it's varies in colour from bright red to clear. A shwo can happen upto a week before. I'd keep any eye on it. Fingers crossed it is a show...

OOOh sounds hopeful, I had a show and it was just like clear jelly

Together with the pains I'd say there's a good chance you could be meeting your baby soon!

I dont know whether I am relieved that I might be meeting baby soon (though the pains I am getting now and then across my belly (they hurt a bit but not unbearable, I can deal with it atm) and feeling as though I need the loo a lot) or terrified of the thought of labour more, I am just so scared of going through it

so does anyone know if the show has to be bloody? I have signs now that I am at the beginning, but other bits dont add up

the show being clear doesnt add up, but on the other hand I have been having a aching back, woke up at 4:30am with a bad belly, having pains, really tired and my belly was hard earlier, so I dont know if I am starting or not!

Labour is a terrifying thought, i know. It was painful but i dont think it was as bad as i thought it would be, i would definately do it again. Just try not to worry, go with the flow and focus on the end result!
You will be fine hun (may seem like its easier said than done now but it will all be over soon!)

Hiya again, the show doesn't have to be bloody, some women never even get a show before labour.

Hi Urchin

Thanks for that I know you said earlier (I have been reading loads and 99.9% mention blood tinged shows) so I was just wondering if anyone else had also had it

Thank your info

does anyone know how not to panic?!

well I think I can really say I have had the show (though still not bloodstained) but just had quite a bit of what I can call green stringy mucusy jelly (sorry)

Just a quick question, how hard would it be to go through labour on your own?

You wouldnt be on your own the MWs are a great help. They see it everyday so can guide you through and they can hold your hand. I held my MWs hand when I was pushing lol

Are you not going to have anyone there with you hun?

Hi there

I I was you I would try and get intouch with my midwife or labour unit cause I'm pretty sure the mucus plug isn't normally to be green and could be a sign of infection.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong

me and the OH havent been getting on lately, but over the last week we have been great, it has seemed like we are a couple again and actually love each other, but earlier when I told him I had had a show, he just sort of went funny on me (we did argue about something else but it only happened after I told him about show) and now we arent talking and I have really had enough of him and his attitude toward me, especially as I havent had a smooth pregnancy.

So I have told him now I dont want him with me during labour, epecially as he said he was going to do hoovering and kitchen floor and stuff but he hasnt bothered, he has just has a go at me and opened a can
