  • Sounds like the normal aches and pains of being pregnant... or could be gas.

  • I'd go in to get it looked at. I started contracting at 30 wks and later I got the horrible sharp pains. They repeatedly looked at my scar tissue thinking it was from my previous c-section and said it was from the contractions but my scar tissue always looked ok.

  • Do you know if your baby is head down yet? I got sharp pains like that somewhere around thirty weeks or so, and it was because my baby finally turned on her own from lying sideways across my abdomen to the head down position in which most babies are born.

    That being said, sharp pain is always worth checking out with your doctor, just in case.

  • I'd be asking my OB about it.
