    Ouch! I hate them, I also get them up my bum too they are horrible. I'm not sure what it is really. I haven't had one in a while, I used to get them pretty frequently in 2nd tri, but not so much anymore. Just ligaments and nerves I am guessing.

    I get them as well. I think it is the baby pressing on the pelvic bone. Not a comfortable feeling for sure. I find it extremely hard to sit straight up now.

    Hope you feel better hun.

    It's round ligament pains! Had them and was convinced I had a bladder infection. That's exactly what it felt like. Stabbing pain in my vagina. The dr said the ligaments run right out of the vagina.

    after like 36,37 weeks these pains could be the cervix effacing, before that just ligaments or fixing pains.

    Yeah when I heard round ligament pain I expected them to feel more like soreness when you do too many sit-ups. But then I had them and they were shooting and sharp. Dr said that's what they feel like.

    My Mum had this with me and was told that she was in very slow labour. It went on for 2 weeks before she went on to full blown labour x x x

    Yep, had them too. Again,like others, not so much in the past week, but at least when I get them again, I'll know it's normal!!
    Never had so many unusual aches and pains in my life!!!!!
