  • I was 31 weeks when I first started to have lower back and belly pain. Call your DR. and see what he tells you to do dont waste your time in the d&l or th er. I turns out for me that I was just streching more to make more room for the growing baby.
    I think your fine. You well read on here alot that people tell you to omg go to LD or ER its not always the case some ppl are just stupid!
    Good luck=)

  • a baby can survive being dellivered as early as 27 weeks. although the chances of survival for baby are better the longer they are in the woumb. Call your dr. because if it is pre-term labor there is medicine used to stop the labor. Or you can just go to labor and del. Try not to stress too much, i know it's hard not to though.

  • It could be just normal cramps, or braxton hicks contractions. I wouldn't worry too much - I would call your OB & ask their opinion. They will tell you weather they want you to go to the hospital, come into the office or just go to bed.

    JUST BREATHE!!!

  • Milly and joe she is always trying to scare some one! This lady doesnt need to rush to the er or ld just because of that. She should call her DR and ask him. If it was just bh or normal cramps she would of wasted a day at the ld or er. I doubt it just because others go into early labor doesnt mean theres a chance for her to be just like you guys!! baby is growing more and more its probably just her body streching.
