    Default Pain when babies head trys to move down

    I have been having like shock type pains when )i think) he is trying to engage his head - or move down further....



    sometimes its like a electric shock sometimes like a cramp .. i try to relax to let him do what he is trying to do .. but i find myself sort of clenching my muscles together and prehpas stopping him..

    has anyone else felt this - not sure if we have nerves there that they press on or if something may be wrong with me ???????????????????????

    Hi Meegm

    I get this too. Mine feel like really sharp pains on my cervix, like stabbing pain, and very brief, not like BHs. And happens when bub moves down with it's head. First started for me at around 35 wks.

    Little buggers aren't they Hope it's not too uncomfy.

    Yep, feels like an electric shock in the cervix to me, takes your breath away doesn't it?
    I'm hoping it is part of the engaging process, so trying to view it as positive and helpful.....

    Hmmmmm ..... I wish!!!! My little cherub is still sitting / lying in his hammock with his head under my ribs on the right side and his bottom out my left side. Not a nice sensation when his head grinds on my ribcage!! OUCH!!! But then again, maybe I should be grateful for not having cervix pain yet

    Hi - I'm getting the same pains too. A terrible, shock-like electric pain that shoots from my cervix all the way down my thighs. Following that my uterus tightens up and I get bad lower back pain followed by cramps. This has been happening numerous times each day (not in a pattern) for nearly two months now.

    My doctor says the baby should be coming this weekend. If not, I'll be induced on Wednesday. I think what's happening is the pre-labour?? But the pain is debilitating and sometimes feels worse than a normal contraction.

    Good luck with it all ladies!
