Following on from this http://mumdrum.com/f/7/t/7981.aspx
i I may have had a bit of a show - kind of browny and mucousy. Never had one before so not sure. It's only a little bit. I also had a good bowel clear out earlier. Given how constipated I am from my iron tablets this is v unusual. Or my prune juice went right through me in about 15 mins.
What do you reckon??

Sounds like a show to me! Keep an eye on things and get checked out if the contractions come back xx
ETA - I'm sure you know, but a show doesn't mean imminent labour, although the clear out is sometimes a sign
What's the plan now? Do you have to go back in?

WDeedeeS, sounds promising (not that I have ever been there!) and definitely go back and get checked out if things change. Fingers crossed! x

Just been told to call up if worried/ tightenings ramp up again. Can a show be a sign my cervix is dilating? I think that's what I need to be careful of because of my previous 2 sections.
Gah, I wish they'd just whip this baby out!

I would think it could definitely be a sign you're dilating.

You obviously are a bit worried so ring them up and see what they suggest - they might be happy for you to stay at home for now, but then again they might think it an idea to check because of your history. x

Have called up and they don't seem too concerned unless tightenings pick up again. It's like a blimmin soap opera here . If I'm still here in 3 weeks time I won't be amused!
