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

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.

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.

After taking 4 gynera pills for emergency, is it possible that I could be pregnant even tho I took the pills? Is it normal to feel nausea and back pain

Possible: Any emergency contraception has a small failure rate. Some of it depends on how soon after intercourse you took the pills. The failure rate when used properly is quite small.

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.

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.

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!

I am 38 weeks 2 days pregnant and have had diarrha, back pain, and increased indigestion. Is this a sign that labor is near? I am 3cm and 90% effaced.

Could be: If u were my pt and your cervix was that ripe I would induce you exactly at 39 weeks if u do not go into labor before then the ideal time to deliver is 39-40 weeks, please discuss with your ob.

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.

Negative pregnant test. Nausea back & back pain and missed birth control x 3 wks?

Hormone: Missing your pills can cause you to have a hormone imbalance. This can be associated with the symptoms you describe. It might take 3 or 4 cycles to regulate unless you restart your pills. You need to wait until your next bleed to start your pills tho.

Hi I'm 38 weeks pregnant the past two days I've felt a bit off, major lower back pain (baby is sunny side up), intense contractions off and on, then t?

Can happen: Contact your OB if contractions are q 5-7 minutes apart, persist at least for an hour, or your bag of water breaks, or if the baby is significantly slow in movements. Meanwhile a back rub, extra strength Tylenol, (acetaminophen) warm tub soak, may help. Best wishes for your labor and delivery.

Check a test: If you think you might be pregnant, check a test. You could save money, though, and wait and see if your period starts on time.

Could I be pregnant dizzy n nausea fatigue back pain pink when wipe yesterday not today just got off depo last shot should've been on 10.1.15 but no?

Pregnant??: Probably not based on the info you have supplied. The most accurate test is the blood test for the beta chain of human chorionic gonadotropin. Get your doc to order it. You'll know soon enough and don't forget next time.
