    I keep getting a shooting pain that seems to go through my cervix. Sometimes it comes with a scratchy feeling like baby is trying to claw his way out. I spoke to my midwife yesterday who seems to think it may be baby's head engaging?!?!?!

    ANyone else had this? Isnt 32 weeks a bit early to be engaging?

    I've been getting this for weeks as well, it's dead weird, isn't it? Almost like the same sensation as when you have a smear test! Doesn't seem possible that it could be caused by something so round as a head! x
