Dilation really means nothing. I was walking around not in labor at 4 and 5cm. At 35 weeks your baby would be a preemie. Ultrasounds can be 2 or pounds off on weight estimates plus just because baby might be term weight doesn't mean they wont have complications. Sounds like normal end of pregnancy stuff to me though. Unless the pains are timetable I would just try and stay comfortable.

you have 7 + pounds of added weight in your pelvis. of course pain in your vag is normal. Dilation and effacing mean absolutely nothing.

Weight's an estimate.

At 35 weeks I remember starting to get weird pains like that, my doctor just said he was moving his head but I didn't think so, it was different. I went back to the doctor after I had it happen a few more times & I was 3Cm dialated and 100 effaced. It did that the rest of my pregnancy and I had my LO at 40 weeks.
