  • well not to scare you but i had bad "back pain" and it was the start of labor i had back labor so all i felt was back pain if it has a rhythm to it you might call it a throbbing but it could be contractions

  • Is the pain coming and going?

    I would get checked out at the hospital to be could be going into preterm labor.

  • It could be a couple of things. I also had severe low back pain that shot down my left leg at about that time in my last pregnancy. That was just the changes due to the pregnancy. Ask your doctor for some exercies (pelvic tilts) that will help ease the pressure and the pain.
    The other thing that comes to mind is the back pain I had with my first pregnancy which turned out to be back labor. It came at regular intervals and I couldn't make it go away by changing position.
    If you feel the pain is coming and going, try timing the pains. It might be labor, in which case I would call the doctor tonight. If it is regular back pain, you can wait to call.

  • It can be a few things as long as it isn't coming and going like a contraction you are just having pain stretching will help
