sharp stabbing pain that comes and goes in vagina


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?

im only 30 weeks!

Come to think of it, the day before I gave birth to Jack, I did have stabbing pains there!

I gave birth to him at only 30 weeks, and I can't help thinking now that if I'd known about that "dilation pains" then I might have been able to do something about the impending labour...

Oh well, it all went fine in the end though, so perhaps it was a good thing I didn't know about it, and didn't get it seen to. Who knows.

EDIT - I've just seen you're 30 weeks... I didn't mean to worry you, sorry!

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 am also 30 weeks and have had sharp stabbing pains to the right of my lower abdomen. Not sure whether to call the midwife as they have gone, now got more of an upper indigestion feeling

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.
