For about 3 weeks now every now and then i've been getting a pinching pain that feels like it's my cervix, because it's the same pain I get when my doctor does a pap smear. I talked the doctor about it and he said that it was a good sign. He said that it was effacement and blah blah blah. Well I started getting the pain about 15 minutes ago and now it's going to my back and giving me a back ache. What the hell is going on?
Does anyone know what pinching pain i'm talking about? It's uncomfortable.
since you are nearly 38 weeks, maybe it could be labor. Just keep an eye on it, and since it went away i'd lean more towards braxton hicks instead of real labor. But when it becomes consistent and more intense, i'd get to the hospital. Good luck, keep us updated!!
I've been having lots of braxton hicks for about a month now. It's not a contraction. It's just a pain. They've come back. Sometimes when I get it it feels like i'm going to pee on me. It must be her head pushing down. I have a dull backache right now.
Omg girl, ive been getting the sammme thing!! Feels like somebodys sticking a knife in the wrong place... And lately ive had a lot of cramping like, period like cramps in my stomach and lower back. I went to the hospital this past monday and they told me it was nothing. I was like.... Ok... I wasnt dilated or anything.
My doctor told me that it was the baby dropping and effacing and everything else. It freaked me out last night b/c I never had a backache from it and it lasted 15-20 minutes straight. Usually it's just a couple of seconds and that's it.
