How Long After Your First Bloody Show with Mucus Did Labor Begin?

How long after your first bloody show with mucus did your labor begin?  I'm specifying "with blood" because I want to avoid circumstances where normal discharge might be confused with the mucus plug.   (If you've had multiple pregnancies, please answer for each pregnancy.  I'm trying to get an idea of what is most common.)

I started losing my plug and had the bloody show at exactly 36 weeks with my son. The next 2 weeks I was spotting and losing parts of plug. Was experiencing contractions for 2 days ( not painful) then on the third day at 38 weeks I had my son.
