Pelvic pain: As you get closer to your due date your pelvis has to stretch to accomodate your new baby. It is not uncommon to have sharp pains and pelvic pressure at this gestational age. Also when your bladder fills you will have small contractions called irritability. These aren't labor, but do hurt. However, if you want more reassurance call your OB/midwife. Someone should be on call even on a Sunday.
