  • Call your doc's office and describe your symptoms - unless you have a fever - it could be back labor.

  • Are you running a fever? What are your flu like symptoms.

  • Call your doctor. I'm not sure what you consider Flu-like symptoms but this could be labor. It won't hurt to run it past the doctor just in case.

  • When I was 38 weeks pregnant with my 2nd I had flu like symtoms and was having contractions. Thought I was in labor so headed into labor and delivery. Good thing I did! I was running a fever and was severly dehydrated. My daughter was in distress, they broke my water to get her out of there. Call your OB.

  • I would give your OB a call and describe your symptoms. They may want to check you out. Good luck mama!!

  • This late in your pregnancy, I would call the doctor. The back pain is totally normal and the pelvic pain/pressure could be baby dropping, but since you are having flu symptoms, definitely call!! gl
