  • I can tell you the shooting pains are stretching pains. The cramping very well could be stretching pains too. Your uterus is stretching to accomodate your little girl=]

  • Yes very normal. I'm 29 weeks pregnant with my second and my OB compared it to "being punched in the vagina" yes she actually said that, but it made a lot of sense....since it's that soreness that you feel.

    Sadly, it will not get better..and may even feel worse when and if you have a second. It's all worth it in the end, just like everyone says!
