I feel pressure when walking around like the head is pushing down and I get sharp pains in my cervix but today I seen my midwife and she said the head is not engaged. Not that I want to to be Iv got 8 weeks left! But why the pressure and pains ?

Fanny daggers? Yeah they are very common towards the end, I had them in the first trimester too. I think it's just everything stretching and moving round in there.

FWIW, I had them at the same stage as you and my son didn't engage until 41 weeks so it shouldn't be anything to worry about!

Lol yup that sounds like a name they would be called!

Pregnancy is very dignified, isn't it? grin

I heard them called Fanny daggers on here a few times so must be very common!
