What does a "Show" look like???? Lock Rss


Just curious what I should look out for regarding the "Show". (one friend says its like pink jelly)
I am 38 weeks on Wednesday and am unsure wat it will look like, and will it come out when I go to toilet or will I find it in my underwear?
Sorry if dumb question.

Its not a dumb question!

I was unsure too when I had my first child. I went into labour about 4:00 in the afternoon and still hadnt passed the show. At about 5:30 I had to go to the toilet (I was in hospital at this point) and I did my business on the toilet and went to wipe myself and to my shock I had blood all over the toilet paper, like an extremly heavy period. (Sorry if its sounds yuk) I yelled for my husband because I was scared something was wrong and he got a widwife. She came into the toilet and said it was just my show. I always though it was just like what you said 'pink jelly' and I got a big shock when I saw all the blood.

I suppose it can vary for many women.

Good luck with your bub!!!!

Hi Emma, I had my show about a week or so before actually going into labour. Mine was a gloopy jelly like blob with a pinkish tinge, maybe the size of a 10c piece.

Hi Emma

I lost my "Show at 32 weeks 6 hours before Haley was born and it was a jelly like substance with a pink tinge too.

You will most likely see it when you go to the toilet too.

When you are having a baby, there are no Dumb Questions smile

Best wishes Honey
