I have never been through this as this is my first and I"m not very far along and I'm no doctor but my best guess is that your baby has probably dropped (am I right) and when you bend down you are forcing it down onto your cervix?

Yep, with my first and she was a low rider LOL but it's just pressure from the weight of the baby.  Take it easy, Momma:)  let someone else do the squatting for the next couple weeks until it's time to push that puppy out!

Im not sure if he has dropped yet. To me it looks like it and sure feels like it but, when I was at the doctors last thursday he checked and he didnt say if he could feel the head pushed up against the cervix.

I think so.. I get the same thing when I squat, try to tie my shes, anything that involves bending at the waist..

well you are brave tieing your shoes :) I havent worn any shoes that dont "slip on" since around 6 months.

It feels like a sharp quick pain right? That's your baby's head bumping the inside of your cervix

no....it kinda feels more like my cervix is stretching. I get the quick sharp pain when hes poking my cervix.

I've basically come to the conclusion that anything that hurts or doesn't feel right during pregnancy is normal. (within reason, of course!!)  Everytime I mention something to my doctor, they're like "That's normal in pregnancy."
