is it normal to have low vaginal cramps when your 28 weeks pregnant?

I've been having these really sharp cramps and they are really low. My husband and i have stopped having sex and the pain just wont stop. Is this normal? Please help me!

  • cramps or like a sharp stab? Is it steady and consistent?

  • sharp stabby pains to the right and left of your lower tummy are most likely ligament pains caused by the ligaments being stretched so much. They're normal and harmless to your baby but they hurt so take it easy! Learn to move slowly and crouch when you sneeze to avoid hurting yourself. Real cramping of your uterus might be Braxton Hicks contractions (also normal) but you should ask your doctor anyway if you think you're having abnormal contractions.
