Pregnancy Pregnancy

Almost 32 Weeks Pregnant

I'm almost 32 weeks and the last 2 days I have been having horrible lower back pain......This morning I started feeling menstrual cramps in my lower abdomen.  Yesterday I went for a stress test and a biophysical ultrasound and everything went great.  However this is my 3rd pregnancy and it is totally different from my first 2.  I have to go 2x a week for the stress tests and ultrasounds do to a delay in growth with this one.  I haven't been able to quit smoking with this one, now grant it I didn't smoke at all with the other 2.  What I'm trying to get at is...........are these pains that I am having normal or maybe do I have something to worry about??  

*lower back pain (which wakes me out of a dead sleep) 

*menstrual cramps in lower abdomen.......my belly isn't hardening and the baby is still moving

I started getting them when i was near my due date.  I felt like i was going to get my period.  I was told they are small contractions.  I got them for a few weeks too.  So it could just mean the same for you.  Baby is coming soon.

 they could be braxton hicks and it could be a sign baby is getting ready to come...the pains all sound pretty normal for a 3rd trimester pregnancy. If you are concerned about them though, give your doctor a call, that's what they are there for.

I am 32 weeks on friday and let me tell you I posted about this in my July 2013 group I feel like I am getting the period of my life or the stomach bug! So far everything seems just like lo is getting ready to come and I am not panicky, but like a not first time mom knows ....you feel water gush, you bleed, you get real contractions stuff like this you call.

I'm 32 weeks too and my lower back kills!  I don't remember it hurting this much w/ my daughter, I exercise an everything and it still kills me, earlier today I felt like I could barely stand upright.  It seems normal, we are carrying a huge weight.
