not sure what to do?

ok, im having really bad pains all over my stomach and lower back, but they dont feel like contractions (well the ones i had with my first anyway) or the BH ive been having for the past month. my stomach stays hard and the pain is constant, the ones in my back are about evey 8 min. now ( ive been having them for about 3 days, but today i can barely walk to the bathroom let alone stand up straight because of the pain) Im alone with my 19 mth old daughter so i dont want to go up to the hospital (which is about 45 min away) and sit there with her for a couple hours for them to tell me its normal. i've tried laying down, a bath, feet propped up ect. it eases up alittle when i lay on my back, but not much. oh im 36 wks 4days, i was just wondering if anyone else is having this, if you know what it is or how to ease the pain? i can still handle the pain at this point but im not sure how much longer if it gets worse..

  • Instead of rushing off to the hospital, try calling your doctor and see what they suggest

  • i've been getting swiched around dr. since i got pg, but i did call and the nurse said its probably just my stomach stretching?? but i really dont think that would hurt this bad, she also said that since i have an app. friday just to wait and they'll check everything then
