  • you might be having contractions, just not strong enough to make your tummy tight.I would call the doc and tell him.he may want you to come in today!

  • I just gave birth to my daughter and the last couple of weeks before birth I had the same thing. Alot of it is stretching of the uterus and your body preparing for birth. Ligament pain last till you have the baby, so that combined with your body preparing could be what is causing the pain. I was always aching and in pain up until she was delivered. Congrats and good luck

  • you could be having contractions and not knowing it. with my son i didnt know i was in labor till they made me go to the hospital for some light bleeding and hooked me up to the monitor and the nurse to me Do you feel that? i said feel what? lol she said you are having a contration didnt know it lol and apparently was having them every 4mins and they were strong enough that i was dialted to a 5. So id call your dr today and tell them whats going on. plus you may be having whats called back labor if your back hurts that bad and there is no relief.

  • Your body may be telling you your ready to head to the hospital! Everybody's labor is different. Best of luck to you.
