Back pain??

I'm 39 weeks preggers and today I was pulling some stuff outta my closet to put in storage and all of a sudden I got the worst back pain! Felt like I pulled a muscle (but I wasn't working hard at all)..

The pain went away but I sat down in the rocking chair and the pain started shooting through my back again and now it's really achey

Think I pulled something? Or maybe baby is laying on a nerve or something?

  • If the pain continues, you may want to call your doc. You could have pulled a muscle, which would make labor very painful. Try rotating positions every 30 minutes to see if baby moves (this will let you know if baby is on a nerve). If it continues, and ends up being consistent, it could be back labor. I had horrible back labor with DD before I went into labor (and during labor with DS and DD). Good luck, and I hope you find some relief soon!
