Yesterday I had an internal and stretch and sweep, I was told that my cervix wasn't yet ripe and that he didn't think I'd go before her due date. (9th/12)
Today I've felt off all day and much more introverted then usual just wanting to be alone. (This happened before my sons birth too) about an hour ago I had a massive show and not sure what to expect now. With my son I never got a show and waters broke just before he was born.
For those who had a show how soon after did you meet your little one?

Have only had a show with DS3. Show started early afternoon, irregular contractions from about 10pm through the night. Established labour was from about 9am and he was born at 10.50am.

For me it was a little more than 24 hours later.
I had a show (lost my plug) on a Friday morning (8amish), I felt kind of 'strange' and after my midwife check up changed my plans of going shopping to sit at home alone because I just felt a little strange & didn't want to go anywhere.
By mid morning I started to get some period type feeling pains & needed to go to the toilet alot. By 3pm mild contractions had started & DD was born 5:30pm the next day (Saturday)

The show you see could possibly be from the s&s you had.
Are you continuing to lose you mucal plug over a period of time? Or do you think the s&s might have loosened part of it a little?
I had a s&s, there was show the moment my OB was done and it set of mild irregular contractions almost straight away. I had DD within 24 hours.

Thanks ladies, everytime I go the bathroom there's more 'show'. Fingers crossed it starts soon.

with my first daughter, I had a show at around 6am and she was born just after 5pm that evening.
with my second daughter, I had a show for many many days leading up to her induction.
I dont remember with my son.

My show has signalled the start of labour for both my kids. From when I got a show my contractions became regular and increasingly frequent. 12 hours for the first, 10 for the second.

10pm show, 11pm waters broke and emergency c section at 11.15am the next day and my little man arrived.
Posted 06 December 2012 - 07:36 AM
Show when I woke up Saturday, after prelabour pains Friday and Friday night. Waters broke that night, got to hospital at 4am, baby born 1.32pm Sunday.

First time, 4pm and ds1 was born at 11.30 the next morning. So 20 hours. Labour didn't get going till 10pm that night.
2nd time, 7pm at night, and ds2 was born at 8.30 the next morning. Though I had a very short labour that time. Whole thing was less than 90 minutes. My waters didn't break till a few seconds before he was born.
Posted 06 December 2012 - 08:10 AM
I only had a show with #3 - about 18 hours before he was born.
Good luck, OP

With DD I had a show early Monday morning, continued to show all Monday, irregular contractions on Tuesday, false labor for 12 hours all Tuesday night to stop on Wednesday.
"Real" labor began about 9pm Wednesday night and then DD was worn at 8.48am Thursday! So a bit of a journey!
Posted 08 December 2012 - 11:51 AM
I went into labour 2 hours after I had a show. Was in labour for 11 hours.
Posted 12 December 2012 - 03:33 PM
Show about 6am 18 hrs before DD was born. Early contractions alsso started then, waters broke 2pm.
Posted 28 February 2013 - 04:43 PM
about 2 days

I think you need to go in if contractions don't start. They will give you an antibiotic which is to protect the baby from infections he / she might be exposed to. You'll probably get sent home then until contractions start but generally if they haven't started 24hrs after your waters break, they will induce. Good luck!

Oh, OP, really hope you've gone into labour by now! Otherwise that's one hell of a long pregnancy
