  • you are 38 weeks preg...the pain is normal, totally normal. I see alot of questions by you about this preg and I am so sorry ypou are hurting, but all the trips to L and d in the world are not going to change that the pains are normal end of the road pregnancy. If something could be done they would have done it, but all of us that are that far along are dealing with it. Just hang in there, you are almost done, let hubby sleep and try to be as comfy as ya can. gpood luck, soon you will forget tthe bad parts when you see your baby.

  • Yep, normal. I'd still ask your DR if it makes you feel better, but honestly at this point the only thing to make you feel better is getting that kid outta ya!! Lol, good luck sweetie, it's almost over. Before you know it your baby will be in kindergarten!! (Although it seems those years go by faster than the last two weeks of pregnancy)

  • Can you take a bath or a shower? Unfortunately there's nothing the ER will do for pain in pregnancy.

  • the pain is normal and they will not fdo anything but send you home. Try a warm shower and let the water hit your back and hips, try gently massaging areas, or have hubby do it. Again this is all normal, I am 33 weeks with baby number 2 and they will send you home and actually if you continue to go in...they will say"oh here she comes again" and maybe if you really are in trouble not take you as seriously. hang in there its almost over.

  • Try taking some tylenol and a warm shower then just try and get some sleep and if the pain keeps coming then maybe i would go to L&D
