Im having lower back pain . Abdomen feels tight and airy. Passing gas. Something serious?

Feeling gassy...: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut. ...Read more

Back pain in lower back in certain places. Starting to hurt in mid - back. Pain radiates to legs. Hurts to lay on stomach/back sometimes. Very tight.

Probably ok, but...: in an 18-year-old, unless you've suffered a major trauma to your spine, there is probably nothing to worry about. You should see your doctor and have an exam. IF nothing concerning is seen, anti inflammatory medicines, physical therapy, and trying to keep active are what's usually recommended.

Braxton-Hicks vs the: real deal...You're a pro: 3 prior pregnancies.

You may want to start weekly visits for cervical checks, but you have to balance the infection risk. Discuss w/ OB. When fundus (top belly) starts to contract, it's time for L&D. Will be fast. ...Read more
