I'm 37 weeks and 6 days pregnant.

I'm 37 weeks and 6 days pregnant. I had a false alarm two days ago, but I'm 1/2 cm dilated. I have been having a constant lower dull back pain, which only gets worse when i get up and walk around. The pain also shoots down my leg. I feel a little uncomfort in my abdomen. Does anyone know what's going on?

  • It could be the early stages of labor, or since it's shooting into your legs it could be the baby pinching your sciatic nerve.

    Go to your dr or labor and delivery and get it checked though. I had my first baby at 37 weeks and was in labor with her for over 10 hours and didn't even know it until my water broke.
