i asked this earlier and only got 2 answers they were good i just would like more input thanks :)))

im 39 1/2 weeks and i keep getting this pain in my stomach and lower back that is painful and i cant talk or be talked to or move i just wanna SIT there.. my stomach gets REALLY hard but not hard in the VERY lowest part of my stomach right above where my pubic area starts...

i thought your WHOLE stomach gets hard when you have a contraction? im pretty sure thats what these are they are painful and hurt and are intense.... so are they or are they not do you think? i am getting one every .... 15-20 min

  • I would say they are contractions. But since they are still so far apart it might be why your whole body is going through them. Good luck!!

  • Sounds like bad Braxton Hicks contractions. Call your doc if they get closer or more intense. Otherwise, it's just your body practicing.

  • Go to the hospital. When mine were 20 minutes apart i didnt even know I was having them. If your not going into labor, atleast u went just incase.
