so much in pain.. what to do ?? :( adult content

im 38 weeks and 4 days pregnant .. according to my doctor i have even dilated 3cm. so according to her it is any day now. but like all ladies my pregnancy is full of aches and pains. the worst part started 2 days ago. that is when i lie down on my comfy bed. all my vagina part is hurting like anything. i can feel shooting pain going down there. also my inner thighs. and it gets worse when i turn over or shift from one side to another. i have to clasp my hand on my mouth so i don't scream out loud. is this normal ?
i am going to mention this to my doctor on tuesday (have an appointment with her then) but i was wondering if this was normal or not so i could contact her earlier .. please help !!

  • There are lots of things going on in your last weeks of pregnancy. Plenty of nerves down there and the baby is pressing on them . When you move around it's like pushing buttons causing shooting pains. Talk to your Dr. They may want to do a stress test on the baby or an ultrasound. to make sure it isn't placenta previa or something else that could be dangerous

  • Yes, that is your cervix dilating and effacing, and the baby settling down further in the birth canal. Definitely sounds like any day to me but I had that pain for about 15 days before actual labor started with my daughter... good luck!!

  • I would call just to see if your doc wants to see you a little sooner. Make sure the pain isnt causing ur bp to go too high. good luck and congrats on the little one!!!

  • Yep would call the doctors answering service today and let her know you could be laboring more than you realize. my friend complained of that one day to me and was having the baby by that night. and the whole time she thought she wasnt in labor cause she was having back labor which feels like a dull ache in the begining.

  • I would put in a call. I felt that same pain in labor. It doesnt hurt to call just in case.
