sharp pains and pressure...33 weeks 4 days preggo

Hi ladies. This is my 3rd baby and I am getting super nervous because I had my 2nd daughter when she was only 34 weeks and im getting close to that day. I have had some sharp pains in my lower ab area as well as pressure when I stand up. I know the pains are probably just ligament stretching but I am worried it could be more with the pressure when I stand up. I dont want to call the dr and bother them but I just dont know what i should do. ANy suggestions.

  • your dr is there for a reason. you wouldn't be bothering them if your really worried about this. pressure could be the baby dropping into place getting ready for the big day.

  • Chances are they're Braxton Hicks contractions, and nothing to worry about. just relax. Drink some water, and lay down on your left side. Get some rest. I've had practice contractions my entire pregnancy and so far, no baby! (He'd better last another 3 mos too!)
