33 weeks pregnant w/ upper back pain, left shoulder blade. Goes across my whole back @ times during the day makes me not want to breath bc of pain. Norm?

Back pain: With rapid weight gain during the third trimester and loosening of ligaments and tendons in preparation for delivery it is not uncommon to have pain in up and down the spine. Make sure that your bras are fitting properly to off load the stress of increasing breast size on your neck and shoulders. See your obstetrician for evaluation of your pain.

Labor: Very possible. Get checked right away. Not uncommon to lose mucus plug early and doesn't mean you'll go into active labor, but the pain you are describing needs to be addressed, especially since 33 weeks.
