Vagina Lightning!

Postby Whig » Wed Apr 09, 2014 6:59 am

Almost 34 weeks and since last night have had some MAJOR vagina lightning going on! This morning I was walking around all hunch-backed because it was taking my breath away! I also feel like the baby is a little lower, my stomach seems to be a little lower and sticking out a titch more, but I'm not sure if that's just my mind playing tricks or not. I know none of this is indicitive of labor but I know it means things are getting closer (if only because this kid's gonna come out at SOME point!)

Anyone else having the lovely lightning "storms"? They scared the bejeezus out of me during my first pregnancy but now I know what to expect :)

I'm not sure what the vagina lightning is, but a few days ago I had some weird pains shooting through my lower pelvis into my vagina. I haven't felt it since, but it definitely caught my attention.

Yup, I'm going through the lightening... with some random contractions that put a LOT of pressure down below and make me feel like I'm stretching to beat all hell. I hope so. I've been eating pineapple as much as I can and taking Evening Primrose oil and red raspberry leaf extract.

I will try walking and nipple stim starting may 2nd.

Anything else we can try? I"M SO READY!
