I am just over 38 weeks pregnant and had a show last night. I had a checkup with my Doctor this morning and he reckons I will be delivering in the next 48 hrs because the head is so low in the pelvis and everything is ready to go. He actually said he had never seen a baby's head so low without the woman actually being in labour so he thought i may be in the early stages of labour when I was there and he sent me to the hospital to get checked (despite having only dull aching and no contractions). The hospital said I am not in the early stages of labour but am likely to go in the next week.
Just wondering how long other mums have had between their 'show' and going into labour. I was all excited thinking labour was going to be this weekend sometime but then I read some women can have a show up to a few weeks before they go into labour ???
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
