Is it safe to use lidocaine jelly during my 36 weeks pregnancy?

Small amounts are probably ok. Ask your OB doc.

36 weeks pregnant! Off and on abdominal pain and cramps. Is this signs of labor? Baby is very active, more then usual.

36 weeks pregnant! Off and on abdominal pain and cramps. Is this signs of labor? Baby is very active, more then usual.

Braxton Hicks: The off and on abdominal pains are Braxton Hicks contractions that are the rehearsal for the real labor when the pains will be timed at increasingly shorter intervals. When those intervals are timed x 5 minutes or less, and you no longer can walk talk laugh or breath, it is time to call your OB MD for labor instructions.

36 weeks pregnant lower stomach pain after sex. Why?

A crowded venue: At 36 weeks there isn't very much room between baby and any vaginal visitors. Try changing positions either to a lateral position or female superior. Gentleness by your partner is tantamount at this stage. Remember that women are the "superior sex."

36 weeks 2 days pregnant and had very slimey thick odorless mucuos come out today, pain in abdominal and lower back what could this mean?

Maybe early labor: At this time in pregnancy you could lose your mucous plug, and you could be feeling cramps as the birth canal begins to thin and soften in preparation for labor. However, this could be signs of premature labor, maybe a urinary tract infection, and should be immediately checked out by your obstetrician.

36 weeks pregnant 2nd kid. Slight cramps in abdomen n light pain in hips & thighs. Can hardly walk. Should I be concerned?

Maybe: As you likely know, it's completely normal to have that type of pain in the hips and thighs during pregnancy. Especially as a pregnancy nears term. The cramping maybe due to preterm labor. That's you may want to be evaluated on l;d for possible early labor.
