  • I had the same thing, I had severe back pain on my left side and it moved to my pelvic area, it was SO bad I couldn't move but I felt I had to, I also had the tightening of the stomach, it wasn't painful but it was uncomfortable. I talked with my doctor and she said to try a heating pad on my back, and tylenol. if the tylenol doesn't work or the pain gets worse no matter what you do then go to the hospital. hot showers helped me too...I still get the back pain and such [I'm 37 weeks now] but it stops after I take some tylenol...also drink LOTS of water, that could be another reason why...try laying on your left side with a body pillow or some other pillow under your belly...laying on your left side is the best when your in your 3rd tri
    it sucks I know, but it sounds a lot like what I had and my doctor said it's muscles...
    if your really worried though, go to the hospital and get checked out
    your not alone in this, good luck

  • Babies can do all kinds of things to your muscles. You could be having spasms or you could be going into labor. I think I would simply call your Drs office and describe your symptoms. They may want to see you. When I was pg I actually went to see a Chiro. Dr. Helped alot with the stiffness and uncomfortableness.

  • I would go, even if it is false labor you shouldn't have to wonder, go and get seen, it will if anything release your anxiety.

  • Thanks a bunch: Allikats-momma ya it is really uncomfie I got an apt with my doctor but he isnt seeing my untile the 5th of jan where he is not around I have never seen a doctor go on so many vactions I hade him with my last two but he was much more responsible then its crazy how one doctor can change over the years. Ya I been taking the tylnole and I took a warm bath warm showers they help for the time I am in for a lil bit of relief but not all the way and as soon as I am out its back to the pain and discomfort. I am sooo round right know that my back is arching inward my husband took a pic and showed me its dipped into a c shape. I will be 34weeks by the time I see my doctor I am hoping he will let me know if I can have the baby soon where I have c seations I usally get to choose the day I have the baby. I am unable to sleep I am in so much pain though and the pressure is unbearable I could of sworn I was in labor.

  • I am glade I was able to stick it out but I still right know dont think i am gonna last to due date I know he dropped and I can feel him and these pains are really bad I have to of dialted some cuz it feels different down their like a lose of space if that makes since. I have never been so sore and uncomfie. I would like the doctor to do a stress test to cuz I have no room and his heads so low I can even make out his foot when he kicks theirs no more space and I am not getting no bigger but he is it just worries me. I wish the nurses would help answer some questines on my mind since I am as fare along as I am.
