Talk to your ob


Your obstetrician about birth options. Disk degeneration should not interfere with a normal vaginal delivery. Back pain is common during pregnancy. Your ob can tell you what medication is safe during pregnancy. Heat, cold, stretching, exercise are usually safe.

No

I'm 38 weeks 4 daus pregnant with constant cramping nausea and severe back pain? Is this a sign of labor?

Answered by:
Dr. Ritu Bhambhani

Get checked


At this stage of pregnancy these symptoms could be sign of labor or a worrisome problem like fetal distress due to any reason like dehydration or cord around baby's neck or early separation of placenta. It is best to see your ob doc and get checked to make sure baby is okay

Severe pain, and 2-day late period by itself may not determine whether you are pregnant or not. However, your OB/GYN doctor can test you if you suspect that you are, let you know how far along you are. Best to get the answer now, so you can supplement properly with prenatal vitamins if you are, and get plenty of rest and good nutrition. Even if you aren't, you want to be in the best shape anyway.

You are not Pregnant


Having bleeding is the physical proof that you are not pregnant. Now, one of the possibilities is that you did get pregnant but had an early miscarriage.

Hard to say but...


This is hard to answer without more details or even without examining you, but it would be totally safe to add 2 cups of Epson salts to your hot bath to get magnesium into your body, which often helps. Consider seeing a physical therapist and/or good osteopath (who does osteopathic manipulation- see http://bit.ly/1kGD0xp) or good chiropractor. Acupuncture can help as well. Consider prenatal yoga.
