    33 wks. vaginal pain. oww!

    i've had these shooting pains "in there" every now and again throughout my pregnancy. i asked the doc about this before & she was concerned at first (back in the 2nd tri) but after being checked a few times, she said my cervix was still closed & long and that i didn't have anything to worry about...i just have growing pains in "there" instead of the round ligament pain?

    anyway, as i get closer to my due date, the shooting pain seems to be getting a little worse...slightly more frequent and more painful. i don't know what it would really feel like to have my bag of water poked at with a stick, but that's the only way i could describe the feeling/pain i have.

    has anyone else experienced this & do you have any idea what's going on?

    tia for any input.

    I am 34 weeks, and I have the same feeling now and then, every once in a while I feel this sharp pain in there. I have real medical explanation what it is though. I have my guesses though. I do feel it when the baby has been moving around so maybe the baby is pushing its little fingers or toes against the cervix. I don't think it is anything to worrie about, as long as there is no bleeding along with it.

    Hi! Is baby head down? The pain could be from the pressure of your babys head which is something I have been experiancing from about 32 weeks on and still am at almost 41 weeks. Is there a lot of pressure with the pain? If so then I'd say it's definetly from babys head.

    Best of luck!

    i don't know yet if baby is head down or not...i suppose the doctor might be able to tell me at my visit next week. i was having a lot of pressure when i'd walk too much, but that's gone away & i just get those pokey pains now.

    thanks for your reply...i hope your little one decides to come soon!

    I had this as well. Felt like the baby was scratcing my cervix. I think this is normal.

    Hey Girls, I've been on the ttc boards but I also have 2 children. I had those pains with my pregnancies and my doc told me that it was my pelvic bones starting to spread apart to make way for the baby. It would always hurt especially when I would first stand up to walk. Hope that helps!!

    I get that too. I think that it could be like the last poster stated, the pelvic bones moving apart, or it is the baby moving around and putting pressure on the cervix. There are times where I will just be sitting in my recliner and I will get a sharp pain going threw my urethrea, like I need to pee now. And it happens in my vagina too. I think the baby just decides to torture us a little bit by pressing down. I will be glad when this baby comes. I am 32 weeks. Due Feb. 28th.

    I'm 37 weeks and have had the same thing for a coupla weeks. My baby's head is 'down there' and I feel tons of pressure. I'm glad to know it's normal though because I was wondering.

    i started having the pains around 16 weeks, but they didn't come as frequently as they do now. i told my doctor about it and she was concerned that i might have been dialating at that point, and sent me into the ER to have a vaginal ultrasound done to make sure that wasn't the case. everything turned out fine for me, but mention it to your doc & see what they think.
