Hi all, i am 37wks and have been getting really uncomfortable sharp pains in my private partsshock he is moving around lots. Feels like he is head butting me down there or something! Would it be my cervix dilating or softening getting ready for labour?! I hope not as I'm booked in for an elc in 3weeks time! If anyone has any ideas as to what this could be that would be great. It's sooo uncomfortable!
