Just that really! I'm having the occasional stabby cervix pain - kind of like a hot poker being shoved up there! - and although I had this in my previous pregnancy, I didn't have it this early so am having a bit of a worry!

Sounds like pelvic girdle pain - not unusual to start that early, especially on a second and subsequent pregnancy.

You can do physio, and prenatal Pilates can help

Ah sounds like fanny daggers. I've had this before in pregnancy and sometimes still just before my period arrives. Does it shoot up and kind of make you lift off the chair (if you're sitting up)

And though fanny daggers isn't a technical term, I believe it's to do with the area stretching so try not to worry flowers
