Sharp pains

I have been having sharp pains down below and now tightening in my belly. I am 38 wks 3 days. Every time I stand up I feel like she is so low that she just going to fall out ( I know she wont). I am trying to wait it out until tomorrow to take to my doc but man they hurt. When I was at doc on Thursday I wasn't even dilated or anything yet. But he did say she was very low and in position. My mood swings are getting horrible and just plain uncomfortable.

I'm sorry about the pains. It sounds like you might be having contractions if you are having the pains while the tightening is happening. Are they very regular? Can you measure them?

I hope everything is okay! Good luck.
