If the baby is head down, the sharp pains could be him hitting your cervix. It hurts, but is normal. Being wet down there is normals too, unless you're soaking a pad. During pregnancy you have a lot of extra discharge.



As far as the belly pains go, it could be a number of things. Bh, contractions or even more stretching. Can you describe the pain? Is your belly getting tight with the pain? Try to drink water and see if the pain goes away. Dehydration can cause contractions, and if you drink a couple of bottles of water it generally makes them go away.



Another way to tell a difference in bh and contractions is, are they timeable? How often are the pains coming? How long are they lasting?

Spotting at 33 weeks is not normal...

Somehow I totally skipped over the spotting.



Op, if you're spotting I would go get checked out.
