terrible pain, just about 38 weeks pregnant.......

I have a stinging feeling almost like im being pierced in my crotch. Did any of you experience this? What could it be? I'm just about 38 weeks. It's been going on for a week or so. It makes it feel almost as though i have to pee cuz its such a sharp pain. Could it be my cervix dilating or start of labor? Any insights?

  • I hated that feeling!! I used to tell my Dh that it felt like dd was reaching all the way down and just scraping her nails up my cervix!! I always put it off as maybe a little dilating, but don't think in any of my pregnancies I ever Sorry it's not really an answer, but you aren't alone :-)

  • I had this too, I think it's just your body trying to prepare for the upcoming event. I've never gone naturally but I can imagine your gearing up!

  • Never had it but my suggestion would be to call your doc or midwife if it is that bad.
