Am nearly 35 weeks and this morning have started getting really sharp pains in my right hand side - totally bending over when they come - they only last a minute or so and am getting one every hour or so - anyone else get the same?

Could be: Braxtons (although they are usually more like a bunching sensation around the middle or period pain down low) or, it could be the baby moving down. I had rotton back ache, pelvic pain and shooting pains around both sides for a few days. Low and behold, the head was down at following vist and engaged the following week. BUT: If you have any bleeding, leakage of fluid, if the pains stay regular or get stronger/more frequent, ring the hospital straight away.
