  • Explain to your doctor what's going on and ask that she check your cervix to see if you are dilating or efaced any. Maybe the lack of baby movement is a sign that you are progressing to labor.

  • I had pressure, had to pee, had diarrhea, threw up, and was feeling "a pinching" in my uterus. That is what told me I was in labor. I am 36 weeks as well and I felt as if the baby would never go back up a bit. When she is ready I know she will come and I am now 3cm. Labor pretty much stopped there for me and will continue when it is time. I could walk around for weeks like this :D Well in any case if you are worried it doesn't hurt to call.

  • That sounds like a urinary tract infection (UTI). Is there any pain or burning when you pee? Definitely get it checked out. It sounds like you might be having kidney pain. Could also be contractions, if the pain is coming and going. It wouldn't be a constant pain. I'd call the advice nurse and just rule stuff out.
