What causes sharp lower abdominal pains during pregnancy?

Hi, I am currently 35 weeks and 4 days pregnant. I have been experiencing a sharp lower abdominal pain sometimes when I stand up that makes me double over in pain and have to sit down. The first one lasted for about 5 seconds, and this last one lasted for about 20 seconds. Can you tell me what this might be?

This could be your pre labour pains.If this continues and for gradual longer durations, I would advise you to get yourself assessed by your obstetrician or report to the ER of the nearest hospital.

I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your problem. Please do not hesitate to ask in case of any further doubts.
