overnight back pain

Ugh so on top of excruciating pelvic pain in the middle of the night...i kept having bad back pain in my lower/middle right part of my back. It doesn't feel like muscle pain, so I just go to thinking its my kidney.

I peed about 5 or 6 times last night (as usual). I dont have a fever. But I've been up for 3 hours now...drank 2 glasses of water...and the back pain is still there and it hurts :(.

I go to the doctor for a check up tomorrow, so obviously ill ask them tomorrow. But was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem.


Im 33 weeks.

I would make sure your back is well supported by pillows while in bed (that helps relieve my back pain) and also look into getting a support belt for your belly during the day.

I have awful back pain every night and i think it's ligaments being stretched funny.

I would get some cranberry juice and start drinking it. If it is your kidney that will help a bit. If the pain intensifies, you should call or go in.

Also, I know that the gallbladder is on the right side so maybe that could be giving you problems?

It could be due to how baby is positioned, it could be back labor, or it could be your kidneys.

I had back labor with my first and ice been getting those back pains too could be false labor contractions. If you time it and it comes and goes call the hospital.The lady few nights it only happens for a minute stops five minutes later happens again maybe the times then goes away the rest of the night.

Try sleeping on the couch with a heating pad on your back. (The one I have turns off after 45 min, so it's not on all night). Good luck.
