The following article was written by our good friends at The Baby Academy:
Your growing baby will likely cause you to feel lots of strange twinges and aches, especially as you head into the last few weeks.
These can usually be relieved by a nice warm bath and/or Paracetamol (unless you are allergic of course).
At times you can feel quite sharp ‘pulling’ pains as the ligaments supporting the womb stretch and strain. These feel a bit like a stitch. They are usually when you change position and are very quick to pass.
If you find that your pain/discomfort is not relieved by a bath/Paracetamol or if the pain is sharp and lasting more than a minute or two, it is always best to contact the doctor or midwife and let them know what’s happening.
