I'm 38 weeks pregnant and dialated to 1 centimeter. I have been having some very sharp pain in my "downstairs" area with lots of pressure. Any ideas of what the sharp pains mean?

  • I had the same situation with my second child. I can't tell you the number of times that I went to the hospital thinking maybe I was in labor. Unfortunately, my doctor told me that it was just my cervix preparing for birth and that I would probably experience that pressure and pain for awhile. There wasn't anything that helped resolve the pain either. The only thing I can say is you will delivering soon, so good luck!
