Anyone else experience this?

Im 38 weeks pregnant, and every few hours or so I'll get this big throbbing pain in my lower back. Its terribly painful, but it only lasts about a min.

  • Sounds like you may be experiencing back labor...I'd call L&D to ask them if you should come in to get checked.

  • You might also try getting on your hands and knees and slowly rocking your hips back and forth or having someone apply counterpressure and rub a tennis ball on your lower back. I had nothing but back labor with my daughter and it was very intense but these two things helped immensely. Good luck mama!
