  • THAT, my dear, is your LO headbutting your cervix. Oh my word that was the WORST part of pregnancy for me, lol. That was the only real complaint I ever had. At least yours has waited this long to start it :) Mine would punch, kick, or headbutt my cervix from about 20 weeks on. I know well that stabbing-in-vagina feeling.

  • Pressure. It will go away just as soon as you have the baby.

    It is also a sign that baby has dropped.

  • Oh!! I remember that! Totally normal... unfortunately ... or fortunately depending on how you look at it.

  • From the time that I was about 35 weeks pregnant and on, my boys would do something that felt like they were sticking a foot or hand out of my crotch! It was uncomfortable, and sort of painful! It is normal though. Good luck!
