    I went to put my son down for a nap and got this god awful stabbing pain in my vagina. I'm 28 weeks and I didn't know if this was normal.

    Sounds like lightning crotch - my midwife described it as feeling like someone is stabbing a knitting needle up there. Basically it's baby hitting your cervix. Takes your breath away doesn't it. All normal though.

    I was getting that between 27 and 30 weeks. And it's returned at 35 weeks. Does really feel like I'm being stabbed there!

    It's horrid, I've had it most days since I guess about 26 weeks. I never had it with my first so was a big shock! Can sometimes happen once in a day or can happen a lot in a day. However if you've any symptoms that accompany it it's probably worth checking, but unfortunately it probably is the lightning crotch!
