    Hi,

    I'm 37 wks and 3 days, this morning i had shooting pains down there to the point where i couldn't walk and go to the loo.

    They came and went and lasted about 1 minute.

    Has anyone else had these and does anyone know what they are?

    I have been having shooting pains down there for quite a few weeks now. They only last about 3 seconds though and I was told it was just baby pressing on a nerve.

    As your's are lasting a full minute, I don't know........But I do know how much it hurts. :hug: :hug: :hug:

    I only had them this morning down there about 5 in total but it killed. Not had them since so not even sure if there part of early labour.
