baby is moving like crazy at the moment and I can feel it moving across my cervix. It's quite painful when he does this...is it normal?!

MrsCK Thu 01-Jan-15 14:28:06

Meant to add...I'm 36 weeks

afreshstartplease Thu 01-Jan-15 14:28:15

How many weeks?

Ohbollocksandballs Thu 01-Jan-15 14:28:43

That'll be the fanny daggers.

afreshstartplease Thu 01-Jan-15 14:28:58

X post!

Is it scratchy stabby like?

MrsCK Thu 01-Jan-15 14:31:23

exactly like a scratchy feel yes!!!!

MrsCK Thu 01-Jan-15 14:32:24

pmsl at fanny daggers! that does describe it though!!

almost feels like he's got his hand and is scratching away at my foof!

afreshstartplease Thu 01-Jan-15 14:34:02

Yes quite normal!

I had this from 35 wks with dc3, used to be worse when i moved about more for what its worth she wasn't born til 39+4

MrsCK Thu 01-Jan-15 14:35:08

Oh good!!

I had visions of him falling out it feels so... there...if you get me?!

JennyBlueWren Thu 01-Jan-15 14:35:11

Not as low but my baby (32) was doing somersaults yesterday!

MrsCK Thu 01-Jan-15 14:37:48

It's such a strange feeling!!! I've been resting loads which is why I think he's been moving lots.....but he's also breech so I was surprised at the fanny daggers!

afreshstartplease Thu 01-Jan-15 14:39:02

It can be quite painful can't it!

I had to stop on the way to and from school with dcs several times and got some concerned looks

MrsCK Thu 01-Jan-15 14:44:02

Yes....really painful!!

afreshstartplease Thu 01-Jan-15 14:45:37

How is this thread making me broody! It's about pain!

MrsCK Thu 01-Jan-15 14:47:31

Haha aww sorry!!

fwiw....it is bloody agony!!!!

cailindana Thu 01-Jan-15 14:53:33

Ugh yeah I remember that with my two, horrible.

Best of luck for the upcoming arrival flowers

Ohbollocksandballs Thu 01-Jan-15 14:55:38

I started around the same time with them and DS was 12 days late. Nothing to worry about.

Ohbollocksandballs Thu 01-Jan-15 14:56:22

But I agree they're bloody painful!

And embarrassing when you're stood in a queue and involuntary shout 'ooooh' and people think you're in labour grin

HoggleHoggle Thu 01-Jan-15 14:59:32

mrsck I had this too, and also had to check with MW that he wasn't going to fall out blush. I think I made it sound like a joke but it kinda wasn't...

Fanny daggers is the perfect way to describe it. Will remember that for next time!

MrsCK Thu 01-Jan-15 15:10:21

I'm so relieved it's normal!!! I said to DH I thought baby might fall out....He just gave me a look!!!!

I'm also very relieved it's not a sign of imminent labour. so not ready for him to come today!

Lol at fanny daggers ... I'm currently being treated to a round of bum shocks smile

MrsCK Thu 01-Jan-15 16:12:30

Bum shocks are great wink

JennyBlueWren Thu 01-Jan-15 16:17:44

Oh no -what are bum shocks?!

I thought rib pokes were bad enough.

bum shocks aren't quite fanny daggers but they are a bit more than cervix strokes!
