Did this affect you?

Earlier today I had to use the restroom but I didn't have a restroom to use. I started having what I thought was mild back labor pains. They were more than just uncomfortable, but very bearable. I'm 36 1/2 weeks so I still have a few weeks to go. I'm just curious if anyone else has had contractions or back labor due to a very full bladder?? Or could it have been from riding in a vehicle for so long?


EDIT: Thank you ladies for all your replies. Today was far better since I used the bathroom as needed. Now just 3 short weeks and I can pee normally again!!! yay

No reason to feel dumb. If you don't ask how are you going to know :)

Yeah I think the most uninterrupted sleep I get is about 2 hours. Just another way Mother Nature preps for you a new baby!
