Oh man, I have it too! It is horrible! My doula friend calls it baby drillhead, so I have adopted that. Pretty much your baby is VERY well engaged, and that is a good thing. And, as they rotate their head it is drilling down into your cervix. I always say it resembles a knife being twisted down their. OUCH! I don't even think ouch fully describes the pain I have. They are not twinges for me, but can be minutes of extended sharp pains down there. Yikes! But, completely normal!!!
