  • My boy always punched me on the wrong side of the cervix! If that makes any sense!! They just move all crazy and at this point they are getting really big so you should expect discomfort.

  • I say no...only because that stuff hurt a lot, I'd stop dead in my tracks walking at work. You said your 37 weeks, you could be laboring, but I'd still hold out unless you're not telling us something and you're worried. Seriously. This stage of pregnancy hurts, I mean when the baby turns their head on your crotch it hurts! They are big!

  • Sounds like your pelvic bone might be getting bumped, my son did that and OMG i would jump and scream it was a sharp pain i was sure his head was going to look funny lol. the best way to relieve the pressure is take a pillow and lie it down you can do this on the bed floor couch whatever is comfy for you and lie on it so your rear is higher than your chest, my doctor had me do this and wow it was so nice to have the pressure off, baby will still bump you once you get back up but it does help for a while to give you some relief.

  • I mean we all hurt at this stage, if you are really concerned please call your doctor or go to the er...if you are feeling ok then the best I can say is you'd prefer to be home than stuck in the er unnecessarily.

  • I actually had bad sciatia with my son, and he ended up being huge, over 8 lbs...aww I can't wait to see when you're baby is born! I'm guessing she's going to be a big girl!

  • Well, I thought my son was going to be small like my daughter and he was freakin huge!!!!!!!!!! Over 8lbs and I'm tiny I know u don't know me in real life but if u saw me you would never think I birthed an 8 lb baby! My girl never gave me much pain and she was only 6 lb 11 oz.

    You said your belly is small, did they measure your water? What has your doctor said lately?
