I am fast aproaching my 30th week of pregnancy and i've noticed in the last two weeks that I have been having some sharp pains in my cervical region off and on. They do not last long, but they do catch my breath. I was wondering if it was possible that my cervix may be already dilating? It happens right below my pubic bone and usually when I am walking or doing something other than sitting. Also, i've heard that most pregnant women in there 3rd trimester have problems with constipation, i'm completely the opposite. I have problems with having an upset stomach. Is that normal? Because I read somewhere that upset stomachs and diarrhea were common signs of labor being close.
Yes it could be braxton hicks, but it could also be you are loosing your mucus plug and they baby is engaging in the birth canal which will eventually start the dialation process. Also the sharp pains are normal and if they intensify to were they are imbarable call your doctor. He might just want to bring you in to do a checkup just to make sure you arent dilating. Good luck and keep us posted
Hmmm. I'm 32wks and have been feeling the same way. I've been getting upset stomachs and those pains just like you have. I'm just seeing if the get worse and i'm going to the doctor next week so i'll let him know then. And if they get worse call him sooner.
I know some of you may think i'm crazy but this is my first pregnancy and I don't know what to expect. I know what braxton hicks feel like and they don't feel like this. Plus they usually happen in my lower stomach or back, not down there. I'm due to be at the Dr. On monday so I will ask her then, but I am kinda hoping he will be here soon even though he's not due til the middle of february.
Plus, since I was 5 months pregnant he has been in the transverse lie and hasn't changed position. Is this going to be a problem?
Im 33w and man oh man...I have had those a few times. All it is, is baby settling down and pushing on the pelvic region. I had those with my first son. I was in tears one time. I had to literally stop walking and squeeze my legs together (as if I had to pee badly) before it would stop. I haven't had them as often, .Y.E.T. But I still about 6.5 weeks left
