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

Not to worry: Everyone is different. Some people have a high tolerance for pain and some people cannot tolerate a needle stick for a blood test. You should ask your OB about an epidural and request this when you are in active labor (frequent and strong contractions). This will enable you to tolerate the contractions but still be able to move and experience labor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
By the situation...: The pain feels more or less the same. The only way to be sure is to know what medication you are being given. For example, iof you have been given pitocin (oxytocin) to induce labor, your pain is induced. If your water bag breaks in WallMart and you start having labor pain, it is natural labor pain. There is no other way to know. Best wishes! ...Read more
