<p>I'll be honest.  It's starting to get to me.  It used to happen only once every few days, but today it's happened quite often, and I don't know what's up.</p>
<p>When the baby kicks upward, no matter how lightly, it sends a shooting, shocking pain.  More on the left side than the right.  It used to be that I felt little to no movement in the upper left area of my uterus, but today baby seemed to be there much more often than normal.  But a couple times I'm not even sure the baby made a movement to set off the shock.</p>
<p>What *is* this?  If I had a fibroid in that area, would it hurt for the baby to kick it? </p>
<p>If it were to happen while I was driving, I'm afraid I'd swerve.  It just totally grabs me; I can't help but react.</p>
<p>If anyone else has experienced something similar, please speak up!  I'd love some ideas, and it's too late to phone my midwife. :)</p>
<p>Thanks in advance!</p>

<p>I just told DH yesterday that the baby is now hitting nerves when he/she kicks me!  Mine wasn't up high like yours but it definitely felt like a nerve was kicked - sharp, shooting pain.</p>

<p>Last night while I was trying to sleep, baby was hitting a nerve near the lower part of my uterus and OH MY GOSH it felt like my leg was being ripped off.  It was horrible.  I agree that if I had been driving when it happened, I would likely have lost control of the vehicle. </p>

<p>No idea how common it is and I'm avoiding going back to bed for fear that baby will wiggle back into an awful position :(</p>

<p>happens to me every now and then too! but not in the same area.. every so often baby will hit what feels like my cervix (maybe?) and it causes the most wretched sharp shooting pain ever. the times it happens, i cant help but jump a bit and let out an "ouch!".. haha which has caused  few stares in public.. but yeah it sucks.</p>

<p>I had what felt like a pinched nerve in my upper belly, kinda near my breast when I was pregnant with DS, it didn't hurt when DS kicked, but was a dull ache constantly. It kind of felt like when you have a sore achy back, but in my belly. After DS was born, it went away, so I assumed it was a nerve. Annoying!</p>

<p>So there's nothing to do but bear it and hope it goes away?  How lovely.<span><img alt="crap.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/crap.gif"></span></p>

This happened to me w/ DD frequently- it literally sent a shock of pain up my spine. What I did find helped a bit was to do daily cat/cow yoga stretches (not sure if you are familiar or not, but basically on your hands and knees, arch your spine up and down). It would encourage her to change positions and would help until the stubborn thing moved back :p</p>

<p>A friend of mine at work who is farther along than me actually has a similar thing going on that she has discussed with her doctor. Her right leg constantly falls asleep because of a nerve that is being pressed by her uterus. Fo' reals. At first, it only happened at night but now she regularly works dragging her asleep right leg along. Horrible! Anyway, her doc said there really wasn't anything to be done, but if it were me I would go straight to the chiropractor.</p>

<p>Good luck ladies!</p>
