In brief: Almost there
What specifically is your doctor uptight about.
Are you dilated? Have you discussed the pros and cons about induction of labor since you are near term? Does your OB realize the scope and severity of your discomfort? Have you consider alternatives such as laying knee-chest or wading in a pool to alleviate lower back pain? Pregnancy related lower back massages help too. Hang in there!
