Is it normal? After I pee I get this strongish stabbing pain across the bottom of my stomach and pressure. Any idea why? By the way I'm 39 weeks and have 5 days left to go!

Are you having any stomach tightening along with that pain? The pressure definitely sounds like your baby has moved down. The pain may be related to contractions, or it may simply be ligament pain...

ypur cervix doesnt have to be opened for the baby to moving down or for labor to start, im almost 38 weeks and my cervix is still closed but my baby is so low the doctor could feel her head! so i would suggest lots of walking and if you bave a birthing ball lots of bouncing to get those contractions going

Nope, still pregnant and my cervix is still completely closed. 2 days until my due date I'm probably going to be a week or so late. I haven't found out anything, but I heard that its normal from my mom. That's about all

Yes I do have stomach tightening, it's been getting hard, I talked to my doctor about it but she said that's normal and to wait until the hardening begins to hurt. She could be moving down a little, but so far I've heard my cervix is completely closed.
