We recently took our home off of the market and got our stuff that we decluttered back and have been unloading it from one of those PODS (portable on demand storage). I have been having DH do most of the heavy lifting but I've been doing a lot of bending, unpacking, sorting, washing and readjusting things on shelves, etc to make room. I have been doing a LITTLE lifting and my daughter of almost 30 pounds wants me to pick her up.

Now I need to clean and since yesterday when I bend over or work too hard I get what feels like shooting pains in my cervix--they're not contrations but really I don't understand what they ARE. I have so much to do and we really overspent at Christmas so hiring help is not an option. I am almost 31 weeks along...

What would you do?

I'd check with your provider.

I am 20 weeks and have had intermittent cervix pain (sharp, shooting, brief) and saw on the 19 week ultrasound that my kiddo is fond of nestling her little feet on my cervix and kneading it like a cat...Asks the doc performing the u/s "Can you feel that?" Yeah. I can feel that! However, since you are farther along and since early dilation could also feel painful, I would definitely check with your provider.

Good luck.

Used to be stay at home parent to our two lovely girls, survived nursing school with family intact, about to graduate and looking for a job! I low-supply nursed my bio daughter for 3 years.
