So the past week when i lay down at night, usually around 930ish I start contracting really bad, it starts in my back and is really painful, they come about every 3-4 mins and sometimes they last til 3-4 am before somewhat letting up so that I can sleep...what is this? I am not dehydrated..I have never experienced this before with any of my pregnancies...I am currently 19 weeks and this has been going on for about a week now...I dont have any type of infection, but this is really getting on my nerves...it hurts so bad, that there r times that i cry thru them b/c they hurt so bad....i dont think they r b.h. b/c the frequency and the intensity....i have had my husband try and rub my back and that does nothing...i try laying on my sides during them and that does nothing to relieve the pain....help please...any suggestions????

nope not muscle spasms i have had them before many times and this is totally different....my husband even feel the tightening and then it does go around to my stomach and last for 45 sec to a min each and then lets up..so i am really confused...dont think kidney stones i have had them before and this doesnt feel like those...

I would talk to your doctor, but around 20 weeks with my son, I started getting braxton hick contractions that hurt so bad I went to the ER freakig out that I was in real labor.... I wasn't.. just some women get the "pain" with the braxton hick contractions too ... but if your worried, talk to your doctor!

I had b/h from 19 weeks on and they had me in pain a few times that I had to go to l&d the first I really freaked out it could be that your baby is growing and causing pain plus I had real bad back labor. Did you have any back labor with your other pregnancies? I would say to play ot safe go to the er and get checked out.
