  • I think i had what your talking about when i was pg too. My dr said the baby was moving and hitting something, like a nerve. But you should talk to you dr just to be safe!

  • My doc said it was because i was a small person, and it was something expanding.. but all normal though.

  • Those pains are because your body is getting ready to have that baby girl!!! You are close to your due date and bones are gonna stretch and yupe....hurt! Try doing some gentle exersices to ease the pain. Good luck and take care!

  • yikes...I know exactly what you are talking about. The sharp pain shoots all the way down? When I tried to explain it to my husband I told him it felt like some one had sewn thread to the walls of my cervix and vagina and were pulling the end of it while the tissue was still raw. LOL.....he had never looked so confused.
    It would literally drop me to my knees at times.
