2 days of contractions and a bloody show...

Hi all - I've had two days of regular (less than 10mins but often as close as 5mins) contractions and this morning has a "bloody show"... anyone got any thoughts on what this is likely to mean for how long until labour officially starts? Haven't been able to sleep for 2 nights due to the pain of the contractions... thoughts/experiences welcome! (I'm 38+4 - first baby)

I'm in the same boat and past due.   My contractions are less regular though.   It's getting kind of difficult to see the end here.

Ring your Mw hospital ward. They may want you in if they're that regular!
