Vaginal pain in the last trimester?

I am 40 weeks pregnant and I have been getting extreme vaginal pains the last few weeks. It feels like either someone is stabbing me (in the vagina) or he is trying to stick an arm or something through. Sometimes they hurt so bad that I have to stop walking and cross my legs. Anyone know what this is or is going through the same thing??

  • 38 weeks and having the same pain. It really sucks! I talked to my doc about it on Wednesday and she said that it is normal. I guess it happens when the baby starts to move down. Hang in there. Its almost over!
