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 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?

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

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

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, warm tub soak, may help. Best wishes for your labor and delivery. ...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?

Low back pain: Low back pain is common with pregnancy. Toward the end of the pregnancy the pelvic ligaments relax in preparation for delivery. The sacroiliac joints are often the source of the low back pain. There are a variety of treatments including pillows, pregnancy braces, moist heat and ice packs, and topical medications. See your obstetrician for guidance. ...Read more
