Signs of Labor

tinkerbell - April 24

Hello ladies,

it's been a while since I last posted. It has been a hectic and busy pregnancy for me, but luckily, reached the 37th week mark and very thankful.

SMS1129 and Justme, I believe we got BFPs almost at the same time. I just read that SMS1129 had just given birth to wonderful Jake & Lily :) CONGRATULATIONS again!

JustMe, how are you doing? Just want to compare notes with you. Last Thursday I had what they called a bloody show, so I panicked a bit, but when I call my doc she said that it will take days before the labor actually begins. I had another bloody show Friday and a bit on Sat, but no contractions yet, just Braxton hicks, and they're manageable. So I guess I'm not into labor yet, as I can still manage to walk around and do some tidying up before little Dominic shows up.

Any one who had the same experience? How many days it took you to go into labor after having a bloody show? Appreciate very much whatever you can share.
Take care!

Hey! It's good to hear from you! I am 37 weeks tomorrow! No signs of labor yet though. I go back in tomorrow to the dr, but as of last week I was 1/2 cm dialated and my cervix was softening, but not thinning yet.

Keep in touch!

Well girls - I was 2cm dialated yesterday and 80% effaced. I am in my 38th week now. I am large, uncomfortable, swollen .... Anyway, the Doc agreed to induce me tomorrow!!!! That's right ... Tomorrow (thursday the 27th) my boys will be born! I am excited to meet them, a bit worried about the labor, but am ready to get this show on the road! I lost my mucas plug today (that was disgusting) - so I think the boys would be coming soon anyway. The Doc is just going to break my water and give me a little pictosin to get things started!

Just think, my next post will be all about the boys!

Thanks to everyone for their support and words of encouragement throughout this entire fertility experience.
