I am 32 weeks pregnant and I'm having a dull back ache that comes and goes and the past day I've had the pain happen in my sides off and on. should I?

See doctor: Either call your OB or go to your hospital's OB triage to be checked out. Most likely you are just having the normal back ache of the third trimester pregnancy and some Braxton-Hicks, but you need an exam to be sure you're not having any signs of preterm labor. ...Read more

Low dull back ache, headache, nausea, and 7 contractions in one hour. 37 weeks 1 day pregnant. Is this labor?

Low dull back ache, headache, nausea, and 7 contractions in one hour. 37 weeks 1 day pregnant. Is this labor?

Possible! Go to L&D!: This could be start of labor with 7 contractions in one hour. With first pregnancy and headache also need to consider precclampsia. I would recommend you go to labor and delivery to be monitored for fetal heart tones, contractions, blood pressure and urine protein.

If persists/worsens, call md. ...Read more

I have a dull lower back ache and I feel dizzy when walking.The back could be from dancing two days ago but it's just come up. What could be the cause?

Back pain: It is difficult to determine the cause because the symptoms are nonspecific. Perhaps you are dehydrated or anemic and that is causing the dizziness (lightheaded). The back pain can be delayed after vigorous exercise or dancing if you strained or overworked muscles that you are not used to using. See your medical doctor. ...Read more

Maybe early labor : Your complaints sound like early labor. They may get greater or they may subside. Call your doctor if the contractions are every 5 minutes, if you start leaking fluid, you have bleeding, or have decreased fetal movement. ...Read more
