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.

I have a 5 day pres of Valtrex (valacyclovir). I've had a sinus infection that has been getting worse: would Valtrex (valacyclovir) work for this?

I have a 5 day pres of Valtrex (valacyclovir). I've had a sinus infection that has been getting worse: would Valtrex (valacyclovir) work for this?

Won't work: Valtrex works for herpes and nothing else. The typical "sinus infection" (usually just a common cold) responds best to over-the-counter decongestants and pain reliever (aspirin, tylenol, (acetaminophen) ibuprofen, etc) if needed. Contact your doctor if your symptoms are severe and you think you might benefit from additional treatment. But for sure don't waste your Valtrex! ...Read more

This will enable you to tolerate the contractions but still be able to move and experience labor. ...Read more

Braxton-Hicks: What you are describing sounds like braxton-hicks contractions. They are common and normal. They can feel just like labor contractions, but because they go away, it is not labor. There is not much one can do, because they are a normal part of pregnancy. Hopefully real labor will come soon and congratulatons. ...Read more
