Cramps & backache? help plz

I just got done shopping, only about 30 minutes of walking and I'm having what feel like menstral cramps and backache. I've had an awful backache all day, and I woke up this morning with horrendous hip pain. I'm 39 weeks. I haven't lost my plug that I know of either. Not sure what to do. I laid around most of the day and my backache and hip pain didn't go away

  • that sounds like what would happen to me when i was near the end. it's contractions. you could see if they're in a pattern or try to lay down on your side and see if tht makes it better. it happened to me everytime when i went shopping during my last pregnancy lol

  • I would say if it doesn't get better in a day or 2 call your doctor.

  • You could be in very early labor. A friend of mine had back pain all day one day, even went to the chiropractor. The next day, her son was born!
