Varies: It really varies across body types, people, and pregnancies. Some people show early, and some can be six or more months along before anyone notices.

I am 36 weeks pregnant as of tomorrow, and I just started my bloody show. Is this an indication that labor is about to start?
Signs of labor: Typically a bloody show occurs while you are in labor. You may pass your mucous plug that could seem bloody. I recommend that you see your doctor to get this evaluated.

38 weeks pregnant dilated to 1 at last appt. I had a little piece of brown in the toilet with greenish mucus on the tp. Could this be my bloody show?
Maybe: Brown after wiping when 38 weeks pregnant can be spotting after an exam, if a woman just had a pelvic exam, or can be a little bloody show as the cervix starts to change. Having brown after an exam or a little bloody show doesn't necessarily mean going into labor soon however. Good luck. ...Read more
