Back labor or just back pain? PIOG

My back started hurting a couple of hours ago and I finally took some tylenol and it has not helped at all. I cannot get comfortable. I will be 38 weeks tomorrow. I have tried laying, sitting in different positions and even standing and I cannot get comfortable no matter what I try. What else can I do? I don't want to go to the hospital if they are just going to send me home. Thanks

  • If it gets progressively worse or patterns like contractions, closer to together, i would go in and get it checked out. Even if it doesn't get worse it wouldn't hurt to get checked out if the pain is that bad.

  • OP Its not contractions, its a constant pain.

  • Try having your dh put pressure on the back of your sacrum, like put his fist there and kind of put pressure, it alleviates the pain by interrupting that pain pathway. Sometimes it can happen with the way the baby is positioned, like if they have their head pushing against the tailbone or something. Good luck!
