Help please.

My friend is due in 12 days. She is getting sharp stabbing pain in her stomach and her back. Her water hasn't broken and she isn't spotting. Could she be going into labor?

  • She should go to the hospital, she may be starting labor. If they send her home atleast she will know how far she is dilated and everything
    goodluck

  • if her stomach is getting hard and tight when she is having the pains she could be going into labor or she could have braxton hicks

  • if she's in labor then she won't be able to walk while having these pains......or so I've always been told by the dr's and nurses.......but braxton hicks is what it could be or just the baby stretching since it's so crowded in there.
    but if she is concerned or worried then she should get checked out better safe than sorry.
