am I in labor right now?

This is my first time going full term and I'm new with this. I keep having really bad back pain and cramping and I feel like I need to use the bathroom but its just gas. the pain is lasting for about 20min or so and then will go away and this has happened to me twice this morning? is it just gas or am i in labor??

  • Doesn't sound like it...
    My first thought is baby's movement.

    Good luck!

  • If in doubt call your doctor. If in labor the pain will continue but if goes away than just gas pain. do not wait to long to find out cause might be to late for pain medicine if in labor.
