Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

It could be musculoskeletal strain (this is a common cause of lower back pain in pregnancy), could be an early kidney infection or stone. If it persists you should see your ob/gyn early. ...Read more

I'm 26 weeks pregnant and having agonising upper back pain it comes and goes every few mins, I've had it for about a week.  Why?

Sacroiliac joint: Pain between your "bumps"? Not sure what you mean by that. I can say that the most common reason for low back and buttock pain during pregnancy is sacroiliac joint pain. A pm;r physician can perform a sacroiliac joint injection in the office without xray (fluoroscopy) if you have clearance from your ob-gyn that injectable corticosteroid is okay. ...Read more

Back pain: Back pain that lingers after pregnancy is not all that uncommon. There can be many potential causes. When a women is pregnant, their pelvic ligaments which hold the pelvic bones together loosen to accomodate the growing baby. Sometimes they do not tighten up again which can cause problem. It could also be how you are holding and carrying your baby. A physiatrist can help assess this. ...Read more

May be a nerve: Since you are pregnant - can not get an X-ray yet. You need an evaluation and and MRI is safe in pregnancy. During pregnancy your tissue is loosened by the Relaxin hormone to allow for delivery through the birth canal. This could allow for your regular tissue to stretch more and thus this could lead to the pain. These are the things your physician can do to clarify this problem. ...Read more

Strengthen the abdominal muscles. ...Read more

Maybe: Clamps, probably hulka or filshie clips are the easiest to reverse and should give you the highest success rates. Even at 40, you should have good odds. Just make sure that you find a fertility specialist that has a lot of experience and expertise in microsurgical tubal reversals, your partner has a normal sperm count, you have a normal fsh and amh level and noting else obvious is wrong. ...Read more

I'm having lower back pain, bleeding with clots that are rubbery and I have pcos why? Am actively trying to get pregnant I do have pcos. Haven't took pills to get pregnant but me and my husband are trying. My lower back pain hurts to bend over and I am no

I'm having lower back pain, bleeding with clots that are rubbery and I have pcos why? Am actively trying to get pregnant I do have pcos. Haven't took pills to get pregnant but me and my husband are trying. My lower back pain hurts to bend over and I am no

When : When a patient is actively trying to get pregnant, heavy bleeding with clots can represent several issues. Complicating the situation here is the pcos. Pcos as you know causes fluctuation of hormones and can cause irregular ovulation and bleeding. Bleeding and clotting can represent dysfunctional uterine bleeding or sometimes can represent a miscarriage. Taking a pregnancy test can be helpful. If a patient has heavy bleeding or feels light-headed, then seeing their doctor is certainly a reasonable next step. ...Read more

Two Issue: Whether you are pregnant or not is impossible to guess or speculate about. Your pregnancy test was a waste of money and is invalid since you did it way too soon for a reliable answer. Cramping, bloating, back pain all sound like a urinary tract infection. These symptoms are not pregnancy symptoms this early in a pregnancy. ...Read more

I am 37 weeks pregnant and have sharp shooting pains in my vagina and lower back pain what does that mean? My vagina feels crampy n i get the sharp pains when the baby moves

This : This is nearly impossible to answer without examining you. Many women have pain during pregnancy, but there are lots of different reasons why. First, you might be having contractions and going into labor. If you are not in labor, the weight of the baby is certainly putting your low back under stress. Massage during pregnancy is recommended to help relieve some of these aches and pains. Other causes would also need a doctor's exam to determine: hemorrhoids, varicose veins, sciatica, and osteitis pubis (pubic symphysitis).
