Yes, this is my third pregnancy so things should be pretty clear for me now. However, I'm not sure how "normal" this is. I woke up this morning with the worst burning pain and pressure in my vaginal area. If any of you have had a bad UTI, it kinda feels like that. Also cramping in my stomach and back, but with no real pattern. So, what do you think? Bad UTI or early signs of labor? I'm only 35 weeks today. And yes, I'll call the dr if it gets too bad but I wanted other opinions before calling an waking him up on a Saturday morning.

Oh my, well I definitely don't want her out yet although I'm miserable! I'm going to try soaking in the bath tub for a few to see if that relieves any of the pain or pressure.

Quoting cadkins07:

Careful, I was told baths with things in them like scents or bubbles or ssalts will make the uti worse

Try an urgent care. Utis are serious, they can lead to kidney infections, which if left untreated cause kidney failure. If you have a uti you need to get a round of antibiotics asap.

Drink lots of water and pick up some azo cranberry pills until you can get to the doc.

Could be prodromal(false) labor, the burning could be a UTI or "changes" happening downt below.
