Today I have been experiencing the sharpest random pains in my stomach which feels like someone is take a knife to the inside of my belly button and also a shooting pain down my right leg..
Are these normal pregnancy pains?

  • I think they're pretty normal. I'm 38 weeks and I'm constantly feeling weird pains here and there. Your baby could be pressing on certain nerves that send shooting pain to different parts of your body, your sciatic nerve is a classic one. I get ligament pains if I move too fast in the wrong direction. It's annoying :( But if it gets so bad to where you can't move at all, you should call your doctor.

  • i USED TO BE WOKEN IN THE NIGHT WITH THE SAME PAINS. I THOUGHT THAT I WAS DYING! LOL. SCIATIC NERVE THAT'S ALL. BUT TO MAKE YOURSELF FEEL BETTER AND TO REDUCE YOUR STRESS LEVEL CALL YOUR DOC'S (WHICH IS ALREADY ON SPEED DIAL, I'M SURE) AND ASK WHAT THEY THINK. IF YOUR NOT BLEEDING AND YOU HAVEN'T HAD ANY OTHER PROBS I WOULD JUST REST.
