Your vagina is connected to your cervix and your cervix to your uterus, and you know what is going on in your uterus.

The last weeks of pregnancy creates tremendous strain on the muscles and organs in your pelvic region. All sorts of strange pains and discomfort can develop.

It is best to talk to your doctor about it. He or she knows what is going on in your body and what potential issues you can be having.

Best of luck with the last 4 weeks and the birth!
