I'm 32+5 and having sharp pains quite low down (pubic area). They're only a few seconds long, happening infrequently and I've been having them since about 1pm today. I can't remember having this with my little girl confused Does it sound like Braxton Hicks?

Could it be pelvic girdle pain rather than braxton hicks? I'm 32 weeks too and have been suffering with it all day. It's really wearing.

If it's stabbing pain, it's more likely to be what's termed 'fanny daggers ' (cervix stretching/effacing I think it is).

I had it a little bit around 30+ weeks, but it was definitely painful. Exactly like stabbing with a knife inside.

Braxton Hicks I can't comment about, as I never had them or at least didn't notice anyway.

Oh yes or fanny daggers!

Never heard of fanny daggers!! It's a really sharp pain and stops me in my tracks but it's only for a second or 2. Pregnancy is glam!
