pains during 8 month of pregnancy
I am 8 months pregnant and for the past week i have been having severe pain in my lower stomach as well as my pelvic area, somtimes the pain shoots from the pelvic area to my belly button, a pain that is out of this world.

Is this common?

I had that with my now 20 month old dd.  My dr. said it was nothing serious as long as no bleeding or "unbearable" pain.  Good Luck!

Yes I am the same as you,I am 34 weeks preggo, it has a name called PBD? I think. Pubic Bone Disorder? It could be your pelvic region is not aligned correctly or it could be just your hips and pelvic region widening to amke room for the baby to come through unfortunaltey not a whole lot can be done docs just write this off as another discomfort in pregnancy that we just have to deal with. I have pain really bad in the pelvic region, when trying to turn over in bed, walk or after getting up after sitting for awhile, the other night I couldnt get off the couch without feeling alot of pain in the pelvic region, so i had to roll myslef off..lol! I also get shooting pains in my vagina and on the outside of the labia. Grrr, now I know why women waddle, and get tired of being pregnant. Just hang on chickie we are almost there!

I had that pain with my DD.Midwife told me that it was baby pressing on my cervix,and was probally an arm of hers going above her head,sure enough when I had a scan there she was asleep with her whole arm around the top of her head.The sharp pain just about stops you dead though eh

COngratulations, and wow my hat goes to you all. My wife is expecting the baby to come out in January 10 so we are excited too. And thank you for the information because she is having similar pain in the lower part and extrem back pain. Luckily she has me there for the most part to help her get in and out of bed or the couch. LOL.

good luck to you all and stay strong (luckily mymom made me a boy) i know i would not handle it the same. ;)

Can be. All women respond different. Some have perfect pregnancies, others have horrible ones.
