I do not want to go to the hospital, BUT, menstrual like cramping, lower back pain, increased pelvic pressure. I experienced this last night also, but I went to bed and felt fine the next day. I thought that episode was from overeating, and also i did not have the back pain or pressure. I am also having my regular Braxton Hicks contractions, which are slightly painful normally, but this pressure and cramping is making it worse.

Go, or call the on call OBGYN, or go to bed?

  • I hate going to the hospital.  I have to say though, always better safe than sorry.

  • Umm since you are 27 wks pregnant, I also agree - better safe than sorry. If you are in actual labor, you'll want to be there & if not, then you can go home & sleep in your own bed. Not worth risking the baby if you are in labor or something is going on IMO

  • Hug your bed goodbye and head to the 27 weeks, you don't want to chance it.

  • I would go to the hospital or call the doctor at the very least.
