  • I've now 38 weeks, but have had the same thing happening to me for about the last 3 weeks. Make sure you're drinking A LOT of water!! If you're not hydrated enough, it will cause you to have contractions, as well as a lower back ache. And you can trust me on this one-- I've been to the hospital 6 times during my pregnancy, and THIS EXACT THING being the reason for 4 of those visits. I kept thinking I was in labor, but I was just really dehydrated.
