11th November 2009 20:36Hi, I was feeling fine all day today but when i got home from my antenatal physio class I thought I was going into labour!! All of a sudden I just got sharp shooting pains across my abdomen, basically from the middle of my bump down to my pelvis. It was quite sharp and it stopped me in my tracks. All I could do was make it to the couch and sit down slowly. When I tried to sit up I could not even do it because the stabbing pain stopped me. This lasted for maybe 30-45 minutes and was pretty consistent, not coming and going so not contractions I guess. ANy idea what this could be or anyone else have this? What are Braxton Hicks like? I hear they are not painful though? Should I be getting them by the way? Also I had really similar sharp shooting pains down my side about a month ago and they said it was ok, probably growing pains, but this time it is in my abdomen/pelvis so should I be worried at all? Thanks girls!!!
