  • Could be labor, back labor is common and suppose to be painful. You are 36 weeks so it would not be unusual to go into labor or for your body to be getting ready.

    For right now I would lay on your left side, heat up a rice sock ( sock filled with dry rice) or a heating pad. Drink fluids and put your feet up. Maybe give that 15 minutes and see how you feel, then make a decision to call the OB.

    If you feel like it's serious though then go ahead and call the OB now to get further advice.

  • you should defiently call the doctor and/or go the the l&d to get checked out. It sounds like labor.
