  • i do remember having some sharp pain at times and the dr. said that my body was getting into position for the baby stretching and the baby was growing so my body had to adjust or get ready for the change. depending on how big your other kids were at birth and the time in between could have alot to do with it try to stay off your feet when possible just to make sure you are not over doing it slow down on the laundry and cleaning for a bit see if it helps you. good luck

  • I had that with my second baby. I was very concerned as well and the doctors just told me that the more babies you have the more you feel in those areas. So I assume that can be normal. And I carried my baby fullterm and she was healthy. I would still suggest talking to your doctor and making sure that it isn't anything serious.

  • very important you go to the doctor! i was having sharp cervical pain when i was about 17 weeks pregnant. i was at work when i was 22 weeks pregnant and started having major contractions. went to the hospital and they told me i had a short cervix. im now on bed rest. if i hadnt gone to the hospital and now on bedrest i would have lost the baby. please call your doctor or go in to see them and have them check your cervix. better safe then sorry
