Sharp stabbing pain in cervix??

Anyone experienced this?? I am 38 weeks and I am feeling sharp shooting pains in my cervix. They only lasts seconds but its really painful. Is that a labor sign?

It could be your baby dropping lower. They call it "lightning" because it can feel like that really quick sharp pains.
