Okay so I am new to this site...but I need advice/help understanding what I am expierencing. I'm 37 weeks so far with my second pregnancy. My first I was induced and did not have any pains like this and can't remember what contractions felt like since I had 2 epiderals, the doc thought I needed more and gave me more and put me on a drip button. So I didn't feel anything and slept through my labor. Right now I'm having sharp stabbing pains in my cervix and its rolling down my vagina and I can feel it in my rectum as well. It hurts so bad and it comes on sometime every 5-6 minutes. I am currently dilated 2 cm and 50% effaced. Not sure what these pains are but they last for an hour or so. And it hurts to sit down when it starts. I have also lost my mucus plug last week so anyone have any ideas what I'm going through? Thanks
Sounds like it could be the start of labour hunni. Maybe you should call your midwife or doctor and get checked out. When you say they are 5/6 mins apart I'd class that as a good time to be getting some medical advice.
Good luck and keep us posted xxxx
This is my sixth child I've had pelvic pain dysfunction also known at SPD or ligament pain,so everything I've been feeling I really feel,all the other pregnancys were similar but not this bad..I get shooting pains from my vagina,and stomach,I can't lie on my back or my stomach will harden and if I move it hurts Soo bad,and that's been going on since 20 weeks...so I guess I'm not going to know real labor pains since these feel the worse,I can't even hardly walk or work anymore...sometimes I get pain like a burning sensation in my vagina,but doc says its nothing...what ? It doesn't feel like Nothing! But I'm also 37 weeks and did a very deep clean at work,moving furniture and stuff although it put me out for a day with a bad HeadAche it didn't throw me in labor...so I too thinks its the baby putting pressure on the body,I so can't wait to get my body back! Good luck to you!
