Sharp crotch pains?

I am 36 weeks and am having these really sharp shooting pains in my pelvic area. I thought it was the baby dropping or whatever, but is it supposed to hurt like so?

  • baby is doing the cervix dance.
    that's when they do some breakdancing on their heads and it's hitting your cervix.
    my dd did it for about the last 4 weeks of my pg. we are pretty sure she was tapping out morse code ...."send....more....little....debbies"...

  • Not to say its the same thing but i've had the same problem. My doc said that it could either be a muscle pulled or he said that sometimes it's your cervix widening which can cause cramps. I'm not really sure but thats what i was told.

  • Yes, I had the same thing. I'd be walking along and WHAM, ouch...and you can't really grab your crotch in pain, lol. Hang in there, it's almost over for you now. A little more discomfort and you get your new wonderful bundle of joy~!~
