What could be the reason for my back pain????

For the past week I've been hardly able to walk. I've had a sharp pain in my back that sometimes moves to my lower stomach, but never goes away. Im 7 months pregnant, and i went to the hospital and its not contractions. Does anyone have any ideas of what it could be and how to make it go away. Bath tub dont help, nor heating pad.

  • Could be a Urinary tract infection, have you doctor test it out.

  • Sciatica?? Although I don't know about it moving to your stomach?? I would think it would just shoot straight down your back. I'm getting shooting pains once in awhile, but it's not too bad yet. ( 16weeks.)

  • I get pinched nerves. I got to a chiropractor once a month to help.
