Help! 5months today and the past 2days ive had low dull nonstop backache. plus this morning the baby feels lower then usual...

ive been beyond tired the past 2days even if i get 10striaght hours of sleep. im extremely nauseous and lightheaded. also, yesterday i noticed i have period like cramping but this morning i noticed its a little more intense then yesterday. what should i do? are these signs of preterm labor? should i be worried? this is my 1st so i havent been able to really to feel the baby kick and move all that well.

  • i just had the same things about 3 days ago. im 20 weeks. i called my doctor and they said it was perfectly normal. they said it was either braxton hicks or my ligaments stretching. but every pregnancy is different, so i would definitely call your doctor. good luck :)

  • I strongly advise you see a doctor, it may be braxton hicks, but you should still get it checked by someone qualified. Good luck!

  • ive been through that,i think she'l move from that position,u just have to lay on ur back with ur legs up. and the pain is probably just ligament pains,ur streching. but to be on the safe side u just have to consult with ur doc
