34 1/2 weeks pregnant.....

What does this sound like to you? Normal or not?

I am 34 weeks and 4 days pregnant.

I am having:
Severe lower back pain
Stomach really hurts, feels like I need to vomit?
Lose bowels
& nothing goes away no matter what I do, drink water, lay on my left side, shower, walking, etc.

This all started yesterday around 3pm, and has gotten worse today.

  • the heartburn sounds normal, and is an unfortunate symptom in pregnancy sometimes. have you tried sipping a glass of cold milk? you can also call your ob or pharmacist to find out what else you can take to relieve heartburn.

    the other stuff though can be signs of pre-term labor, even the nausea, although the nausea can just be morning sickness, which can come and go anytime during pregnancy. for the cramping/severe back pain i would definitely call the ob.

  • lower back pain could be from the way the baby is positioned,
    cramping could be from braxston hicks or strainging the lower ab muscles.
    stomach hurting could be from something u ate
    as could the heartburn
    or just lack of room-

    when i was PG with fatty number 3 they thought my gall bladder was about to burst but after an u/s they figured out she was just so big she was pushing up on it with her feet.

    depending on ur recent activities alot of this could be caulked up to just normal prengnacy whoos and over doing it-
    but if u feel its something that needs to be address call ur ob- and ask her/him.

  • I am 36 weeks and have had all the same symptoms the past 3 days and i have severe lower back pain A LOT. I think it's all normal but if it would make you feel better call the nurse line and ask.....I hope it gets better for you!

  • Thanks ladies. Yeah, the heartburn comes and goes all the time lol. I am high risk for preterm labor, but they tell me to not go in until my water breaks or my contractions are less than 4 mins apart. I have a call into the doc, so we will see :) thanks for the advice.

  • Hey we are due real close! I am 34 weeks and 5 days. I've got all that except heartburn. Knock on wood, I do not get heartburn. You know they say if you get heartburn while pregnant, your baby will have lots of hair.
