  • if it were me, i would wait, but personally i like to get to the hospital at the last minute to avoid interventions :) are you having like come-and-go back pains? i never had back labor so i'm not sure. GL!

  • Go to the hospital when the pain is too much for you to handle personally. They always say when you are doubled over in pain, then it is time to get to the hospital asap.

  • hey, tandie first of all let me say this, WHAT THE HELL ARE U WAITING ON?! lol. if i were u i would go, theres no need of waiting until the pain gets unbearable. because, now a days, if u wait and go to the hospital too leate they will not give u an epidural or anything for pain, since ur so close to delivery.

  • I waqs 32 wks pregnant with my first. I had a lot of back pain for 4 days before I went to the hospital. I had a bad back before I got pregnant and people always told me your back pain gets worse when you are pregnant. I just figure it was just that geting worse. Once I got to the hospital I was 4cm and in active labor. It was just all in my back and not in my stomache.

  • I would go, especially since you are so close to your due date. Even if it's false alarm.
