I'm 37+2 and last night I got sharp shooting pains going up my vagina, this is baby number 4 and have never experienced this, anyone else get this? Thanks x

I used to get this when walking when heavily pregnant with dc 3
Think it might have been from her head rubbing possibly?

shitatusernames Fri 06-Jun-14 12:58:09

Yes that's what I'm thinking Busy, I was reading in bed at the time and it made me gasp lol.

I used to get it on the school run. And having to try not to look like I was going into labour was hard!

shitatusernames Fri 06-Jun-14 13:45:06

Ha ha yes, I totally get that grin

I've had that a few times too, it's awful isn't it? << ow >>

It is theborrower, had one waiting at the icecream van but not as ouchy as last nights x

I've had this loads over the last few weeks. Midwife says it's my cervix starting to open up - and I am 3-4cm dilated now, so I'm guessing she's right.

theborrower Fri 06-Jun-14 22:02:50

darkside Ooo really? I'm 36 weeks, is that good or bad (ie does it indicate labour in any kind of timeframe?)

Darksideofthemoon88 Sat 07-Jun-14 06:58:57

Really really smile Sadly it doesn't seem to have indicated anything very much: I'm now 39+2, have been in early labour as confirmed by the hospital since early on Wednesday, and there's STILL no further sign of DD!!

theborrower Sat 07-Jun-14 08:17:46

darkside have you had any other signs of labour? Hope it all goes smoothly for you - you must be getting impatient! smile

longleggedlady Sat 07-Jun-14 08:23:27

I've had these too however my little one is breech and am booked in for c sectionon18th so hope she stays put till then!! X

Darksideofthemoon88 Sat 07-Jun-14 08:34:36

Yeah, been whinging about it all over here! hmm Don't seem to be getting any closer though, and my patience is wearing very thin...

Darksideofthemoon88 Sat 07-Jun-14 08:35:03

Sorry, didn't mean to be rude - that wasn't quite the face I was going for!

theborrower Sat 07-Jun-14 10:51:16

That's ok. I just read your other thread smile

shitatusernames Sat 07-Jun-14 14:55:46

Glad I'm not the only one that's been experiencing them, I so hope it's going to happen soon, I've been feeling a little off colour today too, so I hope it means something, good luck ladies!! xx

Iv been having this for the past few days. It's so sore isn't it? I'm only 35 weeks hope it's not the start of early labour ? Iv also had some light cramps should I call my midwife do you think?

goshhhhhh Mon 09-Jun-14 08:01:20

I had this right at the end of my pregnancy with dc1. Everyone said it was nothing & was actually an infection. They only took me seriously when I had a raging temperature after giving birth. Probably is nothing but I would get it checked out.

whereisthewitch Mon 09-Jun-14 08:05:11

I've had this in this pregnancy (im 39 weeks and have had it since 34). MW told me it was the head settling into my pelvis.
Don't think it ir period cramps are anything to worry about at this stage but it's definitely embarrassing when you're standing in asda picking cereal and you yelp smile

AlwaysDancing1234 Mon 09-Jun-14 11:41:33

Yes! Glad it's not just me, I'm 38 weeks and have been getting these odd sharp pains the last week or so, made me yelp on a couple of occasions! Also getting lots of strong braxton hicks so hoping it's the start of something (she will probably be 2 weeks late now I've said that)!!

shitatusernames Wed 18-Jun-14 13:28:56

Well nothing here, she's still keeping me waiting, 39 weeks today, the braxtons have slowed right down, and I keep thinking calm before the storm? But nope :-(
