My back has been in agony lately. I mean its always been in pain, just gets worse. Im 36 weeks five days. The pain is in the middle and lower. Lower gets sharp shooting pain as well as a constant pain. Middle is always a constant pain. No rubbing helps. Ive also had to pee a lot more. Seems like four times an hour with constant urges. I know shes head down. Her legs are by my ribs and butt is against my tummy. Shes been head down most of my pregnancy so i have no clue if lightening is occurring or has occurred. Any advice is appreciated (:

Baby could be just sitting in an unfavourable position for you.  I actually found, especially later in pregnancy, that contact aggravated the discomfort more than resolved it.  When my udder balm was no longer numbing the pain I tried acupuncture & found it worked wonders for me.  Also bouncing on a yoga ball relieved some tension, with the added bonus of helping baby into a favourable birthing position.
