    The last few days I've been getting stabbing pains "down there." I don't have any discharge or blood, but the pain is enough to stop me in my tracks for a bit. I don't *think* I've been contracting--but for me the Braxton Hicks have always been worse than the real ones. ;) I've looked and haven't been able to find anything to tell me if this is normal or not. I don't want to call tomorrow and go in if this is normal because I would have to drag all 3 kids by myself and that's just too much for me right now. Of course if this isn't normal then I would be in in a heartbeat.

    Maybe this is just my body's way of telling me to slow down and take it easy (we had a very busy weekend with a lot of traveling). Ideas anyone?

    I hate being at this stage; where I'm so miserable, ready to be done and having lots of new pains, but yet knowing the baby has to cook longer in order to be completely okay. I also feel so *dumb* about everything because this pregnancy is so different from the others.

    June 4th cannot come soon enough. ;)

    When in and ask. That's what I did. It does sound normal to me but it can't hurt just to call and ask. My midwife helped guide me through some questionalbe bh cntx. They wre every 2-3 minutes for several hours (like all day) but didn't hurt. They did go away when I went to bed at night but would often return the next day. This went on for weeks. She said I would know the real thing when it happened...and I certainly did :)

    I would call just to ask and be safe. No question is ever dumb...I figure, if it's enough to make you come on here and ask, you should probably call the! I hope it's nothing though.

    I was getting those "pains" really really low towards the end of my single pregnancy. I think it was just round ligaments pains (which I never had with the twins b/c of being on bedrest and not doing anything). This pregnancy I was working on my feet 24 hours a week and in the office 24 hours a week and just really busy. I worked until 2 days before having the baby. I think it totally took more a toll on my body.

    HUGS to you!

    I agree, you should call if you are unsure.

    I did (am having) the same exact thing you are describing and I did call and go in...they checked and I am not freaked me out because it was like really bad menstrual cramps and I was having some painful Braxton Hicks...they attributed it to not resting and being on my feet all day, having had twins (all stretched out <_< ), and chasing three little ones all day. I have been trying to sit more, and they are right it does subside somewhat, but it is scary and I have never felt this way with any of the others totally stinks!!! I used to enjoy being pg...this time I am sooooo done!!!

    I hope you feel better soon and June 4 comes real fast!!

    Sorry, the pains I'm talking about aren't in my abdomen. By "down there" I meant in my vagina or my cervix or something in that area.

    and I am assuming that you are talking about stabbing pains that aren't baby kicks either? That has to be the one kick I can't stand.
