So the baby has been getting more and more active (or at least I'm feeling it alot more) over the past couple of weeks.  Last night, I went to stand up, and I could have sworn she punched me right in the cervix!  This may be my second child, but it is still somehow the only time when I could pinpoint directly where my cervix is located.  There was a punch (though I don't know if it was her fist or some other part of her body) and then a sharp pain that went right through me.

 

Is this normal?  Again, it may seem odd to ask, but DS was born at 33 weeks and 6 days.  I am now 35.5 weeks with this one.  Everything with this pregnancy, including length, has been different than with my first... other than the fact that there's a baby involved, of course.

 

I joke with my husband that she's not even born yet and already on my last nerve (literally)! lol

I think it's pretty normal. Sometimes this one will alternate between my bladder and my cervix. Owwwwwwww.

Oh so normal. I'm jealous that she's not hurting your rectum....

I've told everyone it feels like he's got a dental tool and is scraping against my cervix, rectum, and urethra. And then sometimes I get a bonus....as he's doing his dental tool move, he's pushing against the top too..usually my ribs, full stomach..whatever is in his way. Lol!

LOL  Yeah.  I'm discovering that it's getting harder and harder for me to move around.  Moving too much causes me to have more of those pains!

 

I also just found out this morning that I'm 2cm dilated.  I wasn't too surprised given how many of those pains and contractions I've been having over the past few days!
