    Bahaha - love those terms! Now all I'm going to think of when I get them is if I spread my legs maybe flashes of light will come out!

    This pain has been stopping me in my tracks sometimes. Now I've googled too much I'm afraid it's PSD

    Thanks now you've got me googling! I get 'popping' joints when I get up for the toilet at night - an aparent symptom. But I put it down to the fact that my hips are often a little misaligned (chiro always adjusts them preg or not preg).

    I've been having some shocking crotch lightening today - bub's been super active and I think he's enrolled in a pilates class too. He's 3/5 engaged now and I can really feel him pushing into my nethers - I think he has a set of kitchen knives attached to the top of his head!!!

    Yeah I get the popping and clicking as well but usually just when I've been sitting for a while and a little walk around stops it. The lightening has been full on for me to! It does sometimes feel like its her fingers down there poking me! I just hope it's her putting pressure on the cervix so the chance of my induction going easier actually happens
