Does This Mean I Am Dilating

I am 35 1/2 weeks, and experiencing a lot of stretching and pain in my va___a and r___m. Also some shooting pains inside va___a/cervix area. Yesterday my dr. said they would still hold off a little to check and see what's going on, could the pain be myself dilating? The baby is usually head down, but I am not sure it's engaged yet.

bb, At around 35 or 36 weeks I also started getting sharp pains in my lower abdomen and around my v____a and cervix. I asked my doctor, who did an internal exam, and said I wasn't dilated (I'm still not:( and I'm 39 weeks btw) but she said not to worry--it could be braxton hicks or the baby could be pinching a nerve...pretty much, it could be a number of things, but since pain is a common thing in pregnancy, I was pretty much just told to deal with it..lol Another thing is that I worked until just two days ago, and I stood all day at work, so if you stand a lot which I don't know if you do, maybe that has something to do with it?.... I have been wondering about those pains too, so if you find anything out, let me know please:) Good luck!

BB i'm in the same boat...it feels like the baby is trying to kick it's way out. Mine is head down too. My Dr is waiting to start checking too. i'm 35 1/2 weeks.
