32 Weeks - Worst back pain ever!
Erica_salas posted:
Hello mothers to be! For the past couple of days i have been having the worse lower back pain ever and getting contractions more often. I have had the contraction problem throughout my whole pregnancies with my other 2 kiddos, but not with such bad lower back pain i have called my Dr but all she says is to relax, if contractions are not closer toether not to go in for check up. What do you guys recommend? If i happen to go into labor will baby be ok?? Super super stressed!!

I would go in to get checked anyway. Drink lots of water and stay off your feet as much as possible. Lungs aren't always fully developed at this point. So baby may have problems breathing to start with but not always. some do just fine. Best wishes.
