Hello. I am 27 weeks pregnant and I am very concerned. Today, I all of a sudden have had bad cramping pains along with heavy pressure all in which is very low on my stomach. It will harden up and will last more than a few minutes. I am also experiencing lower back pain/pressure during and after and it is painful to some extent... should i be worried? Also- the baby is kicking around very rapidly and jumpy today? please give me some good news so i won't worry?

I am responding to you 5 days after your post - I hope that you have contacted your OB/Midwife, as you may in fact be in pre-term labor and based on what you are describing - the baby should be checked on.

Wishing you the best,
