  • It could be back labor contractions. I would definately call the doctor.

    It's a little early for preterm labor. Most preterm labor cases are after 25 weeks but that doesn't mean it doesn't occur so I would be checked just to be on the safe side.

    It could also just be some stretching and growing of the uterus but it's best to be certain.

  • Chances are it's normal and you should just get used to it. I have been having back pain off and on since I was about 18 weeks and I'm 26 now. The Dr said it's normal and will probably only get worse.
