Re: Sharp pains at 36 weeks?
Depending on exactly where the pains were, they could be contractions, or they could be ligament spasms. I had several terrible ligament spasms late in my last pregnancy that usually happened when I exerted myself. I remember being in Sam's Club, doubled over the side of the shopping cart and people thought I was in labor! But I wasn't. Were the pains to one side, or centralized?
