  • 39 weeks? Isn't the "bread" ready to come out of the oven? A fetus at that age pushes all your organs around in your belly. You'e short of breath, heart burn, you name it. Yes! The baby is sitting on a nerve for your leg to go out from under you. Expect to get "hip labor" I hate to tell you. Maybe "back labor" too when it starts.

  • I DONT HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH THIS BUT MY ADVICE WOULD BE TO CALL A DOCTOR... IF YOU CANT GET TO YOURS, CALL THE ER AND SEE WHAT THEY SAY

  • Not sure about the chest pain, but the nerve pain sounds like sciatica. Your baby is probably pressing against the sciatic nerve which tends to shoot pains down one side and down your leg.
