It's a sign that things are close. I had those pains for about a week before my waters broke and I went into labour.
Good luck! By the way I had my baby at 37 weeks so that may also happen to you!

Hey, it sounds like it with those pains, but they may be braxton hicks if they're regular. If they're irregular pains and in the groin rather than the abdo, they may be stretching ligaments due to bub getting in pos. I had that dropping stretching feeling about 3weeks before birth.
Do you have another scan to find out that bub is in good pos, or is your midwife/care provider satisfied that bub is moving down ok?
Good luck, hope you get through next 2weeks, making your bub full term at end of the 37thweek.

Unfortunately it doesnt' necessarily mean that things will happen soon. Mikayla "dropped" and was engaged from about 36 weeks, and I had the pains as well, but she still didn't arrive till 40+2. Her nose was very squished from being pushed down in my pelvis for so long!

My DS dropped at about 36 weeks and I had those sharp pains from about 35 weeks. Apart from that I had no real prelabour symptoms and DS was born at 38+3. Good luck!!
