Hi all I am 32 weeks and today Ive been experiencing sharp stabbing pains in my cervix . This is my 3rd pregnancy and I have never experienced this before , has anyone else ? They really took my breath away and I had to stop walking .
Ohh me too Hun. Like a lightening bolt shooting through. I think it could be babies head engaging? This is my 5th baby and I've never experienced it this early on, I'm 31+3 won't be seeing MW till 34wks so I won't know if he's engaged yet. I've been experiencing it since yesterday, not nice at all!
Thanks for replying Jodie at least I am not the only one !My bump is still high maybe he had a little bounce on my cervix and popped back up again lol . I am seeing Midwife to at 34 wks on new years eve so I will be asking .
It's pretty normal, they brace themselves against the top of the womb and headbutt downwards. It hurts like a knitting needle up your whatsit but it's harmless and probably helps with dilation (towards the end) It's not fun though, takes your breath away!
Don't worry about it (unless obviously it changes, gets worse, you start bleeding or anything)
Yes I got this when I was 32 weeks- I'm now approaching 34 weeks and have a scan on Friday. I wondered if it was because I had a low lying placenta and it was shifting as baby was growing and moving...I will ask midwife on Friday but good to know I'm not the only one!! I also wondered (this is my first pregnancy so I have a lot of queries) if it could be braxton hicks- what does that feel like? X
Well ladies just back from my Gp i have a hurrendous thrush infection , due to just finishing antibiotics . I mentioned the cervix pain and it could be the thrush irritating it ive to keep an eye on it if worse get checked , also my bump looks to have dropped today . x
