Severe Back Pain
Diabetiacal posted:
This post obviously isn't for me but for my girlfriend.She is nine months pregnant and on a Doctor prescribed High Blood Pressure Medication, Labetalol i believe, She woke up this morning with severe back pain, laying down helps but doesn't relieve all the pain. I'm worried about what it might be, I have never seen her cry like this before anything would be useful

Hi Diabetiacal -

Hopefully your girlfriend has talked with her doctor to find out what is going on.

How many weeks is she? Please check back in to let us know how she is doing and if she is in labor.
