  • I remember feeling soreness down there. Not unbearable pain, just soreness. Actually, it felt like my pelvis was cracked right down the middle and it was going to bust open if I spread my legs to far! LOL! But I knew it was just loose ligaments so it didn't freak me out. I always reminded myself it was a good sign because my body was loosening up to let the baby through. I would say if it hurts just as bad when you lay down, or it keeps you from sleeping, that's too much pain and should be discussed with your doctor. Either way, talk to your doctor and they can reassure you.

  • Yes it is quite normal. In fact it will get more frequent the closer you get to your due date.

  • The pubic bone does seperate for birth. Your body may be preparing for birth since you are so far along. Call your Dr. and just mention.

  • I'm 37 weeks as well, and had my weekly ob appt. yesterday. The doctor actually asked me if I was having sharp pains yet in that area, and I said, "Oh my god! Yes!! How did you know?!" Lol. He told me it's perfectly normal and that its a mixture of round ligament pains and the baby moving around hitting various nerves. So, no worries!! :)
