Weird pain down there

39 weeks and 1day... a week ago i was 1cm dilated 40% effaced and +1 stationed. Lately i have been having this sharp pain it almost feels as if the baby is trying to push her way out or break my water or something lol has any one else experienced this? what is it? did your water actually break after a while? first time mom so any information is helpful!

  • I'm 39 weeks and have been getting that same feeling for quite a while. My midwife says that's my cervix softening and dilating.
