yeah i had exactly that a few weeks ago..now its sorta died down from rapid fire to intermittent strikes but it still makes me jump a lil' when im sitting down or wanna grab myself when it happens! as if that would stop the lightning bolt from escaping, its crazy.
i used to describe it to my dr as feeling like i was being impaled from the inside out. Early on my dr told me it was the baby hitting some nerves but now when i get it she says its cuz my LO's head is really low. its definitely a duller lighning bolt nowadays... if that is any consolation..
my due date is Tuesday....and for the past 2 days i have been up at night with this (seems to only happen before and when in bed!)
its so painful....sitting down makes my "jolts" worse! xx
