Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If you are feeling sharp shooting pains at 34 weeks and this is your 4th baby, then please consult your gynecologist as you could be starting labor.

With subsequent pregnancies, it is quite normal to deliver earlier. It could also be infection. Hope this helps. Take care!
