Hi, is it possible to have an labor pain even if I had abortion on the 9th week of pregnancy? (01/27/13) have lots of pain for 2days now.

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.

2 week pregnancy white discharge with labour pains why sir?

Premenstrual cramps?: No woman knows she is 2 weeks pregnant, at the time she is 2 weeks pregnant. That is because she is conceiving at that time (we count from the beginning of the last menstrual period, so 2 weeks is about when ovulation occurs). A woman can only look back in time after confirming her pregnancy at about 4-5 weeks pregnant, to see what she was doing 2-3 weeks earlier when she was 2 weeks pregnant. ...Read more
