36 weeks, awkward stabbing pains?

I was at the doctor's Monday morning and my cervix was still closed. I'd say about a week or two ago I had a weird, sharp, stabbing-like pain in my vagina. (TMI, I know) .. but then last night it got pretty bad, I felt this pain about three or four times within a minute and then it was gone. Haven't felt it again yet. What could this be?

  • I had the same thing!!! It hurt so bad! But my doc said it was my body getting ready and opening up for birth. It lasted a while, but you're almost there! woo-hoo!!

  • I also got this same pain and it wasn't long after I started experiencing those sharp pains in my vajay-jay that I started to dialate. I was about 1.5 cm around 37 ish weeks and I had my son 8 days early. It's just your bodies way of getting ready to birth the baby. Mine weren't constant or consistent either though mine were just sporadic, almost like throbbing pains down there. Soon enough you'll be holding your little bundle so just hang in there :-)
