There's : There's no way to know whether you are pregnant or not without a test, though many women will experience fatigue, breast swelling and tenderness, headaches, nausea/morning sickness, and/or frequent urination. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to not have your period or if they become irregular, you should contact your doctor. ...Read more

Is constant pain in lumbar left side normal in 40th week of pregnancy? No signs of active labor. Pain doesn't allow for waking and sitting.

Is constant pain in lumbar left side normal in 40th week of pregnancy? No signs of active labor. Pain doesn't allow for waking and sitting.

Not normal but seen: Constant back pain limiting basic activities of daily living (e.g. Walking or sitting) isn't normal; not even at 40 week of pregnancy. The weight gain, the "basketball" & surge in hormone preparing pelvic bones for delivery may contribute to the problem. Constant severe activity limiting pain should be discussed with ob. C-section is considered as the condition may interfere w/ vaginal delivery. ...Read more

I'm in 37th week of pregnancy, my vagina started to ache. Is it normal and a sign of pre-term labor?

Not usually: Vaginal aching is typically an indication of pressure from pregnancy, not usually preterm labor. Labor pain is cyclical.... It comes in waves and lasts for about 60 seconds or so. The vaginal pain you describe is more typically a stabbing, aching pain that is constant. Sometimes a warm bath at this stage in pregnancy can feel good. ...Read more

I dilated fully with no contractions at 37 weeks.The only sign of labor was my water broke. Should I be concerned with my cervix with next pregnancy?

Signs of preterm labor i'm 24 years old and 27 weeks pregnant. I think i'm having normal aches and pains of pregnancy, but need to make sure. 

Braxton hicks (5-6 a day)
hip pain (constant)
heaviness in abdomen and thighs (off and on for weeks now)
sharp

All : All of the above symptoms you described are common at your stage of pregnancy. However, my rule of thumb for any pregnant patient is to contact your ob/gyn if you have any concerns, even the slightest. You can call your doctor's office 24/7 and there will always be someone on call to take your call. If you have any of the following signs of preterm labor present to OB triage right away: contractions that occur every 10 min. Or more frequently leakage of fluid or blood from your vagina increase in pelvic pressure intense backache cramps( like your period) best of luck with the rest of your pregnancy! ...Read more
