  • Sounds like the position of your baby. Have you tried Tylenol and relaxing?

  • sounds kinda like back labor. have you timed them? drink plenty of water and rest and if it doesnt go away it could be labor

  • I had it when I went into labor with my oldest the only thing that helped was to stand. take tylenol or wear a belly band to pull your tummy up it could be your round ligaments . call the doctor if it worsen and see what they suggest.

  • Because it goes away when you lay down, I would say is a position problem. Get on your hands and knees and she if the baby moves and it feels better.

  • Sounds like probably the baby's position since the pain is intensified by your movement. Try taking a warm bath and massaging your tummy and bit to see if they baby will settle into a more comfortable position. I wouldn't rule out back labor since you are at 39 weeks, so keep track of the time intervals between the pains and look for a pattern that may signal that they might actually be contractions.

  • i have had it since 6:30 a.m. i have taken 2 baths and a hot shower! i have been tryin to lay around but it ends up makin it worse and tylenol isnt really doin anything for me. its kind like a sharp stabbing pain in my back that goes to my lower belly and around my sides. the times arent consistant but it wont go away!
