I am having sharp pains in what I believe is my cervix.  I am 38+4 weeks pregnant. It has been going on for about an hour now. ?

I'm 38 weeks pregnant 5 CM dilated and mushy cervix but no contractions. Why? How can I bring them on ? Is there any possible ways?

Being Pregnant: Stop. Your baby needs more time. These last weeks are the most important for lung development. Your contractions will happen when the baby is ready. It is not ready yet! ...Read more

Im 38 weeks pregnant and at my last appointment my doctor inform me that my cervix was still closed. That I haven't dilated at all. Is this normal?

Yes, its normal: During your first pregnancy (and sometimes even during a subsequent pregnancy) your cervix may not begin to dilate until your membranes rupture and you start having contractions.
