I am having strong back pain and feel like my hips are being pulled apart I am 38 weeks pregnant wot could this be?

Softening Pelvis: Your pelvic joints are softening & shifting to allow your baby to move through the birth canal. It is actually pretty common to have pain this late in the pregnancy. You can use a full body pillow when lying down to support your pelvis. Try not to be on your feet all day. You are almost there- the joy of your new baby will make all this worth it. ...Read more

I've taken 3 home pregnancy years and I was suppose to start on the 20th all test came back negative and I'm very nausea more fatigue and back pain?

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

I am 38 weeks pregnant and have been losing my plug for over two weeks, now I have lower back pain and nnausea what should I do?

I am 38 weeks pregnant and have been losing my plug for over two weeks, now I have lower back pain and nnausea what should I do?

Call you OB: Passing the mucus plug doesn't mean a whole lot, but a lot of women assume they are passing mucus plug and instead its meconium stained fluid. Call your OB/midwife and tell them you've been leaking something and may be having early labor. You probably need to be placed on the monitor to check for labor and examined to see if its fluid and to see if cervix dilated. Call this morning! ...Read more

I am 38 weeks pregnant and I have had clear jelly like discharge twice today and more frequent bm's. Could I be going into labor? A lot of back pain is coming too?

Maybe: It sounds like there is more pressure on your cervix this morning. It doesn't mean you will go into labor. You need to rest and drink a lot of water. If you are dehydrated, you will have contractions that can hurt, but they don't do anything. You want to do whatever makes them go away, otherwise you won't feel good. Real labor will not go away with hydration, so you can't stop it. ...Read more

38 weeks pregnant and having severe low back pain, a significant amout of pressure. It's been getting worse to where I can't breathe when it comes on?

Lots of Reasons: When pregnant, there are so many things going on. Your hormones are very different causing your ligaments to stretch quite a bit especially in the pelvis resulting in pain. Also the baby's position can place stress on your spine resulting in bulging discs or even herniated disks causing the sciatica pain. Recommend seeing a pregnancy specialized therapist that can guide you through this. ...Read more

I'm 38 weeks pregnant and im getting period like cramps and low back pain can't cope with this pain anymore getting the cramps for 2 weeks now?

Sacroiliac joints: As the pregnancy nears completion, the joints and ligaments of the birth canal begin to loosen. The baby often rotates from breech to head down position. The added pressure leads to cramps and pain from the sacroiliac joints in your back. See your gynecologist to discuss treatments that reduce the pain. ...Read more
