  • Call your OB now

  • call the ob and if he tells you to try some relazation methods or that is sounds like braxton hicks get in a warm bath.... the warm water will relax those muscles... sounds hard but remain calm... to help with pain breath in your nose and out your mouth slowly... a heating pad also works if you want to try laying down on the couch.... if there is someone around you ask them to rub your lower back not a full on massage but rub with a little pressure.... this will also help the lower back pain.... and take the rest of the day off... to relax.... you deserve it!!!!!

  • for real you need to call your doctor. When i was at 23 weeks i had HORRIBLE pain in my stomach i could not even stand it was so bad. I tried to get ahold of my doctor (of course it was over a holiday and i could not) i went the ER and they found a heart beat, but i felt no movement. Then the next day i went to my doctors they did an ultrasound and my son had died, i had a still born the next day. So call your doctor i would not want something like this to happen to anyone.
