Questionnn because I see so many different circumstances.

For the past few weeks (32 weeks now) I have felt stabbing pains in my cervix like someone has a needle in there stabbing it and it has gotten more frequent as the weeks go by.3rd kid and it only ever happend with my 2nd pregnancy but it didn’t happen then until closer to time to deliver.

Now I have seen many people say it’s multiple things..crotch lightening, cervix thining/dialation, baby moving head against nerves ...

But wouldn’t the head have to be engaged to be able to hit the cervix and cause dilation and or thining??

It all gets so confusing sometimes with the different theory’s.

Does anyways know the real reason for the stabby pains or is it always a guess??
