I am getting these pains too and i am 33 weeks. What you're feeling, most likely, is your cervix dilating, or opening, as it prepares for the pa__sage of your baby. Dilation can take place several weeks or just hours before labor begins. Normally, it's not cause for concern, but you should tell your healthcare provider about it. If the pain occurs in your lower abdomen, call your pract_tioner immediately. What helps: Try relaxing in a warm shower or bath. And remember that the pain is a signal that your baby is well on its way!

I'm 38 weeks pregnant too and I have been having them on and off for days now. I have no clue what they are , but I heard that it has something to do with cervix opening, but I'm not sure:)

sometimes when the baby is head down, which yours should be at 38 weeks they can get their hands above thier head and can push or sc___pe your cervix with their hands fingers or head especially if you have an active baby this might be what it is...when i had them with all 4 pregancies it felt similar to when you fall onto the center bar of a boy's bike...not fun i am not sure that it would be dialation if it feels like this only because i usually start to get them at 24 weeks and am not dialated or effaced at all.

You might have an infection or something. I'd let your gynocologist know about it if it worsens. If it doesn't get any worse, then it probably isn't serious or you could be about to start your period or something. Good luck!

OH MY GOODNESS, I CAME TO THIS WEBSITE TO ASK THE SAME QUESTION, I AM ALSO 38 WEEKS, I GET THEM WHEN I WALK, GET UP FROM SITTING DOWN. WELL GLAD TO KNOW ITS PRETTY NORMAL. I WAS ALSO TOLD BY MY MOM THIS HAS TO DUE WITH MY CERVIX OPENING, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE I AM ALREADY 3 CM DIALATED!!!

I am 34 weeks with my third baby and yes it feels like a SHARP pinch between super sharp fingernails or a stab and it feels like it happens inside and on my cervix. I'll be walking and have to stop until it goes away. It is most often yoru cervix dilating when it is that sharp pain. I am at 2 cm already at 34 weeks. The pressure that someone described as when you fall on a boys bike is more from when the baby's head is putting pressure especially if it has dropped like someone said.

yep...I know what those are like...I'm 38 weeks and sometimes when my husband is talking to the baby I will feel those sharp pains, I asked my ob about them and he said that they are perfectly normal as long as they are not accompanied by bleeding

I've had sharp pains and aching around my v____a since the second trimester. Doctor says that it's normal. I do not think it's a sign of the baby on it's way.

I am not pregnant and i have these pain so not sure what they are but they will stop you in your tracks

I've been having those super sharp pains as well!! My husband and I walked the dog last night and at times I would have to grab his arm and croutch down. I keep hearing it's the cervix dialating, I'm 35 weeks, does this mean she could come early. Also, did any of you women lose your mucous plug after having these pains, I hear that happens as well!
