  • it could be your muscles stretching to accommodate your baby's growth. but i'm no expert or anything so if its something your really worried about call your doctor

  • muscle spasm? That's what I figure they gave you the water for. I'm sure they called your doctor so you should be ok but those things really hurt. Try stretching and see if that helps. Do the stretches in slow motions and in a set of three. Stretch whatever area is hurting.

  • I don't remember which side, but with my first I had EXTREME pain in my lower back. I finally went to the ER when I couldn't sleep. I was up all night. Anyway, it was kidney stones. Dring a TON of water, and if you can't handle the pain go back in. I was hospitalized twice with it! I hope you feel better soon.
