Last night I laid on the couch to try to fall asleep ( because the bed is not comfortable and I was trying anything!) and the baby was moving so hard and constantly that I would doze between movements and then be jolted awake moaning because each movement was causing shooting pains to my cervix. I m a 36 wks, 5 days----and as of last week 100% effaced, with an “open” cervix and baby is at +1 station. I am assuming that because he is far down—that’s why any movement sends shocks through my cervix and groin---but last night it was ridiculous!! My husband could see my belly moving form across the room because they were such big movements---and he did this for about two hours. Crazy thing is that today—he seems to be in the same position he has been in for weeks—so I have not what a clue what aerobics class was about last night !
But does any one else have a problem with their movements being really painful and uncomfortable?? I don’t want to be a baby about it---but it was brutal!!
what DOES hurt is every night when i wake up needing to pee. my cervix and everything hurts/cramps so bad i dont want to get up....but i obviously need to.
i kind of try to slide off the bed and limp to the bathroom. then just peeing hurts soooo bad at first.
i get scared that this is what labor feels like?!
