Sharp stabbing pains?

I just wondered if anyone has had anything similar going on....
I'm getting sharp stabbing type pains (nothing unbearable but definitely uncomfortable) way down low. Not contractions I dont' think. It happens sometimes during the day but mostly in the evening. Do you think that it is just the baby gettting really low and maybe pushing against something like my bladder?

I don't have any uncomfortable feelings during urination or anything. It wouldn't be anything serious like an infection would it? It's mostly just accompanied by the baby moving and then a really sharp pain that lasts a couple of seconds.

Thoughts? Normal?

I get this. I assume it to be my bladder being pressed on. It hurts a LOT and is usually combined with obvious baby movement. It occasionally stops me in my tracks.

I haven't found an official name for it, and so I think it's just a nerve on the outside of or near my bladder. It's probably one of the most annoying and temporarily incpacitating things that I've experienced to date.

Sounds normal to me. My baby is pretty low (station 0 ) and I get the sharp stabbing pains when she is moving around and slamming her head around. Unpleasant, but does not sound like anything to worry about.
i got said it was baby (who was super low) pushing against nerves. i think some of it may have been dilation, too, b/c when i went for my 42 wk appt, i was 3 cm dilated.
yup i get babe doing the same thing
thanks, everyone!
