  • Have you called your doctor? They do sound like braxton hicks... since you're not delivering yet... ;) And that backache, I was around the same along and the baby was pinching my sciatic nerve causing beyond intense back pain... you need to call your doc. They gave me a muscle relaxant and it helped with it... be prepared though, I had back labor and it sucks hardcore.

  • hmmm i think ill just get fobbed of i have slipped my L4 and L5 disk at the bottom so they'll just relate it to that but its the type of lower backach you get when your having a period thats what making me link it to the contractions admittedly they do sound like it but dont feel like it and certainly dont tie in with the things to do to stop them!!!
