  • Could it be indigestion? Sometimes when I get bad indigestion, I get really strong almost stabbing pains under my breasts.

  • I could be just your body stretching, maybe your baby dropped and is pulling on muscles.

  • i'm 38 weeks and i have been having all kinds of weird aches and pains since about 34 weeks. i actually went to the ER twice, wondering if it was early labor or something. so far, its hasn't been anything except round ligament pain and pressure from baby dropping. but some people just feel crampy and never have the text book style contractions, so i'd say call your doctor or just go into the ER if you continue to feel concerned, cause even though it may not be anything, it could be you never know. i felt sort of apologetic for going in twice for nothing, but turns out they totally understand cause sooooooo many women come in thinking they are in labor. it's super common, and they'd rather you came in for nothing than not come in and it be serious. :)
