what is this feeling?

i have this sharp tearing pain, it feels like its at the top of my uterus right in my rib cage, kinda where you feel heartburn all the time. it seriously feels like someone stabbed me and is trying to rip me open.could this possibly be my uterus stretching down?my baby just dropped a bit farther down the birth canal a few days ago.could i just now be feeling the effects? or is it me feeling the dropping more? i am 39 weeks.
