im 35 weeks pregnant with my first baby and I'm getting shooting pains in my vagina and bottom of my stomach iv had it the last few weeks on and off but today they are getting frequent. I know this is normal but is this a sign of labour coming on withing the next few weeks? I really don't know what to expect x

It might be baby hitting your cervix, is baby engaged yet? I remember getting these first time towards the end and with this one have been having them for months on and off already. If they're really painful call ur mw just to be sure x

Yes i got these pains with both my babies, from about 30 weeks. DD1 came at 39 weeks and i was induced at 35 weeks with DD2 so i dont know what would have happened if i had gone into labour naturally. I think it is just babys head pushing on your cervix - nothing to worry about but damn sore!!!
