looked up sharp pain in vagina and came up with this:
What you may be experiencing: Late in pregnancy, you may feel pain inside the vagina- usually a sharp, piercing pain that comes and goes suddenly. What you're feeling, most likely, is your cervix dilating, or opening, as it prepares for the passage 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 practitioner immediately.
Worried now i might be dilating. Has anyone had this before and its not dilation?
lol thats ok. i knw if he was born now he would be in safe hands his been headdown from the start so maybe its just him being naughty and pushing on my cervix. im not sure tho but not gonna bother goin into hosp until im in agony. just odd that im getting stabbing shooting feelings in my veg xxx tnx for advice xxxxx
My doctor told me that I may experience shooting pains in my vagina-although I haven't yet. He didn't say anything that would make me worry if I did. He just listed it as a symptom I may have around this time. I wouldn't worry heavily about them based on what he said. HTH
I have had these sharp pains come and go since about 32 weeks. At 35 weeks I was checked for dilation and was 1/2 cm, now at 38 weeks I was just barely a 1cm. So it could be you starting to dilate, but you can go for weeks dilated. But probably not a bad idea to watch for the loss of your mucus plug or leaking amniotic fluid or cramps and contractions.
