  • Sounds to me like the baby is moving farther down in the birth canal.

  • check w your doc to see if you are dialating - sounds like your hips are spreading -
    you can be dialated for a while without progression but make sure you get your dr to check

  • Call your obgyn to be checked right away...You may be starting labor. Is this your first? Those "lightning" pains could be contractions.
