My husband thinks I'm in labor & need to go to the hospital...I think I'm just experiencing an icky day of pregnancy...thoughts please?!??

I have horrible heartburn, have been vomiting for the last couple hours, had diarrea, my back hurts, & I have cramps. I feel the need to pace the living room while my back acts up, even though it gets harder to breath. To me, I think these are normal things to feel around this time (just about 34weeks). He thinks I'm having back labor because it comes & goes - but I don't think so because in between it is still achy. Can I have some thoughts to what others think this could be? Is he over-reacting or am I under-reacting?? Anyone, please?

  • does your stomach tighten as your back pain comes and loosen when it goes? Is the pain coming right on schedule? If so, contact your Dr. If not, try lying down on your side.
    Drink plenty of water and try to rest even though you're in pain.

  • You can always go to labor and delivery and get checked out and put his mind at ease. Its your body though and you know it best so you will know when its time
