Experienced Mamas, is this normal?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I keep getting these weird shooting pains in my nether regions. Sometimes it feels like I sit down too hard on my cervix. Sometimes it shoots down the wall of my vagina. Sometimes it feels like someone attached a string through my vaginal wall to my hip or pelvis. Sometimes it just feels like we had really rough sex when we have had none.

Sorry about the graphic information, but I am really wondering what the heck is going on down there. I am surprised that doctors just schedule your first appointment several weeks in, even for first timers, and don't give you a heads up about some of this stuff.

Oh yeah. So many weird sensations. So glad to be in this DDC and commiserate! I *think* I know what you are talking about. I got a few shooting pains when I coughed (lol!) and was like WHAT was THAT? I think it's just the common uterine stretching in the 1st trimester.

I'm really itchy and uncomfortable in all my clothes right now. Weird isn't?

I believe I've felt the same sensations too. I think it may just be the uterus and baby pressing down on the cervix.

Oh yes. I call them stabby vagina pains. It was one of my first symptoms this time that I was in fact pregnant. They get way worse later on. Lots of aches and pains to get used to smile.gif

Thank you! It is nice to know that I am not losing my mind, and that it is normal. My mom and BFF both said they never had anything like this.

I remember being really sore the first time. Like I road a bike too long or something. I think it's due to all the extra blood flow down there. Right now, my tail bone hurts really bad when I sit at my desk. Not sure what that's about.
