When I had periods I would always get this stabbing pain really low down. It would get more painful then wear off all within a matter of 30 seconds. It is uncomfortable but I just got used to it.

I'm 29 weeks and last night I started getting the pains again and am getting them today too.

Are they braxton hicks? I couldn't say I've noticed my abdomen getting harder which is how all the websites describe them.

Anyone else get a similar thing?

How low down?

They don't sound much like BH to me. Could be your ligaments stretching?

If they are coming regularly I would contact your antenatal services (daycare or similar) could be UTI making you tighten so you need to get it checked out. If they are just one or two in a day I would assume ligament pain.
