  • if not labor round ligament pain. The ligaments supporting your uterus are very very stretched out right now. But I'm sure you know that.:) This can cause pain in the area you describe. Aren't you happy that it's almost over??

  • Perhaps kidney stone. But those are so painful I am sure you'd go to the hospital by now. Perhaps Labor or false labor pains....?

  • It could be where the baby is laying, and at this stage, anything could be labor right now, it may be Braxton Hicks. Don't worry too much, if it's a frequent feeling, call your OB and ask if you should come into pre- delivery for check-up. Unless your water breaks or you've lost the plug completely, it may not be labor. But keep a timer on it, write it down if you need to, if the pain gets harder and tighter, def call your ob and let them know what you're feeling, it could be the start of a long pregnancy ! I'm 36 and I'm just countin' down myself!

  • It could be labor, the baby could be laying on something, it could be a kidney stone, you could've pulled a muscle... call your doctor in the morning & describe the pain. He'll tell you if you should go in or not.

  • That definitely does NOT sound like round ligament pain. I would see your doctor or at least call ASAP. That really sounds like labor!
