How soon after BLOODY SHOW did you go into labor?
Im not talking about thr mucus plug since ive been loosing that for weeks upon weeks but this morning I had what can only be described as the "bloody show" (tmi I know) where huge globs of bright red mucus came out after I felt like I needed to go #2. After this ive had back pain and light contractions and just now I went to the bathroom and again more of that bloody stuff came out. Ugh. I didnt get the "bloody show" until my water broke last time I was pregnant so im curious to know how soon after getting it people went into labor? Also I had a membrane sweep yesterday so could this just be a side effect and mean nothing? Tomorrow I will be 39 weeks.

6
1. Same day

5
2. Within 72 hours

3
3. A week or so later

2
4. Doesn't mean anything and is just a side effect from the sweep

I think that is from your membrane sweep, i had one done at 40weeks 5 days and i spotted for a couple hours then nothing, and went in to labour later that night. Since you did have that done i am pretty sure it just that.

It really sounds like just from the membrane sweep, the mucus blood is just the discharge if you are getting contractions i would say you might go into labour soon or the next couple days. But really it is hard to say. When they do the membrane sweep they irritate the cervix so that it starts to contract and you start to dilate. SO that is why you bleed.

Bloody show is different than losing your mucous plug. This is labor happening chica! Most women have their baby within 24 hours of having bloody show. For me it was 2-3 days. Regardless you are having this baby, if not now then at least in the next few days.

I was in labor when it occurred....the early stages of active labor...Grey was there within...hm...3? 4 hours? With Kahlan I THINK it happened in early labor and she was there within 24 hours. I don't remember specifically about the bloody show with her though.

Good luck girl hope to be seeing a "she's here!" update soon :)

I went into labor that same day. I think I was in the beginning stages of labor the morning of October 13th(day before due date), had an appointment that afternoon, had my membranes swept at the appointment, returned home at 2pm. At 3pm started hard contractions. 3:30pm had my bloody show, and by 7pm I was in L&D because I just couldn't deal with the pain anymore. I ended up having Conner on his due date October 14th.

I think your probably in the beginning stages of labor!!!! Good luck! I hope this is finally it for you, I know it's been a long waiting game and your probably ready to be done lol. Wishing you tons of luck, and sending a TON of labor dust!

I was in the hospital and got checked twice to see if I was dilating. When I got home I had bloody globs coming out of me. I believe it is just a side effect.

If you are lightly spotting or its brown blood then it is probably from irritation. When I had my bloody show it was huge globs of mucus and bright red blood. I actually called the doctor because there was so much and I was worried something was wrong. If you go into labor it should be within 72 hours if the membrane sweep worked. Good luck I hope this is it for you!
