The show doesn’t have to ave blood in it, looks like yellowish/clear snot. My first baby i saw the show and it only had a teeny streak of blood. Second baby i dont think it had blood in it.
Hope all goes well for the next few days/wks
I never lost my plug with my daughter but with my son it came 4 weeks before I had him, it was thick like slug slime and no matter how many times I wiped it was still there, ewwww it was gross, there was a tiny streak of blood but nothing else after that, I cannot carry babies head down and I think that is why I didn’t go into labor when I lost my plug because there was not enough pressure there, it shouldn’t be much longer, just remember we are all here for last minute questions and that we have all survived child birth…you will do great!!!
Bloody show is the passage of a small amount of blood or blood-tinged mucus through the vagina near the end of pregnancy. It can occur just before labor or in early labor as the cervix changes shape, freeing mucus and blood that occupied the cervical glands or cervical os.
Bloody show is a relatively common feature of pregnancy, and it does not signify increased risk to the mother or baby. A larger amount of bleeding, however, may signify a more dangerous, abnormal complication of pregnancy, such as placental abruption or placenta previa. Large amounts of bleeding during or after childbirth itself may come from uterine atony or laceration of the cervix, vagina, or perineum.
There are 3 signs of the onset of labour: 1) A bloody show 2) Rupture of membranes (Waters breaking) 3) Onset of tightenings or contractions. However, these may occur at any time and in any order. Some women do not experience a show or their waters breaking until well into advanced labour.
