Stabbing pains in cervix - are these effacement pains?




I've been having some sharp shooting or stabbing like pains in my cervix, and I thiiiiink I may have heard the midwife tell somebody that these were cervical effacement pains, but I'm not 100% certain. Anybody else had these, and do you know if that's what they are?

xx Thanks girls

I have had something like this, but I wouldn't consider what I feel as exactly a stabbing 'pain' but a stabbing, sharp almost electric shock sort of sensation (Pain makes me cry, and this doesn't, lol!) and I started getting them around 34-36ish weeks. I am not sure what they are, but they really make me squirm and tense up.

Yes! Well, I wouldn't describe them as an electric shock (not for me anyway!) but that's what the midwife said they feel like...maybe you're effacing and I'm not Either way, that's awesome x That's true, they aren't enough to make you cry but god are they uncomfy!

Yeah I couldn't help bu squirm, and always had to speak up and tell hubby if we were alone because it was just such a strong, powerful sensation and so.. raw I guess is a good way to describe it. I havn't fel it as often lately, but back in those weeks I mentioned, it happened quite a bit! And was it was definitely felt in my cervix.

Yes I have been getting these for about 3 weeks now!.....

....With my first baby, I had this same pain and my waters broke that night and had him within 4 hrs!!!!

....I do believe that it is effacement pains and also nerve pain due to the LO pushing on nerves down there.....

What a great first labour time! It did almost feel, when I felt quite a strong pain today, that my waters were going to go. Not quite sure why Not that they did, unfortunately

Hopefully the pains mean something's imminent - and maybe if you're getting them now you'll get to 37 weeks and be ready to go! xx

I dont know but it does take you by surprise doesnt it!? I have been getting these for a few weeks and I never thought about effacement but wouldnt that mean the plug should soon follow? I havent had any show at all confusing

Yeah that is what I was thinking, and I was getting them several weeks ago but as far as I know I have not lost my plug, and I am not having any show either.

Apparently yeah, effacement and then the plug will follow (from what I read today). I really hope it's not much longer for you - it's paining me, even, that your little man is staying so firmly put! I know how frustrated you are

My consultant said it was just to do with the baby's head moving slowly down.
