  • If you are having contractions, tell the doctors about that first. The biggest concern would be labour (how far are you?) If they are regular and strong, you need to go to labor and delivery to get checked out.

  • if you are not having regular contractions then there is no reason to go in. I know where you are coming form with the hip pain....i think. Sometimes just my right hip with hurt like he**. Shooting, paralyzing pain that makes me want to cry and the only thing i can do is lay down. sitting used to work but not anymore! And I am not gaining too fast - I have gained about 20-25 lbs and i am 38 weeks. I read it's the bone/joint relaxing hormone plus the weight of the baby on your pelvs and hips. I think you can do some stretches to help, maybe google it and see how to do them. It may last until delivery :( GL Sorry that was a lot of into and not a lot of answers !

  • If it's possible to stay home I would do it. being a SAHM is so awesome.... TIRING but awesome lol I have 2 kids and preg with 3rd and i have worked on and off because when you don't have a job you always think "it would be better if i could just bring in a little extra money" but then the whole time you're working you think " i wish i was home with my babies!!!" LOL So we are working on budgeting and I will be a SAHM for good. I hope it all works out for you

  • and if you HAVE to work after then maybe you can budget well and talk to your employer about an early maternity leave since you're having problems
