39 weeks severe back pain Rachael Montgomery Due December 21 (boy); Kentucky 24 posts

I am 39 weeks today, and all day I have had pretty bad pain in my lower back all day, I have tried to lay down with a pillow between my knees, i have taken some Tylenol so i'm hoping that will help. Could this be me trying to go into labor? I had been having contractions for about a week but today i haven't had any just lots of pain. Oh and pressure in my lower stomach.

Could be back labor, I would contact doctor. Your almost at your due date girl. Good luck!

If it is constant it's probably just the way the baby is laying.

try gettin down on all fours and arching ur back up, hold then relax.. Repeat several times thru out day....This always seemed to help me. It took pressure off my lower back and allowed the baby to move positions for a while...

I tried to take some tylenol and just had a contraction! I'm hoping its the real deal. I had some on and off for over a week now but every time they would get regular they stopped and the ones that would last wouldn't be regular. I hope you figure it out as well! & congrats.

Wow. At 32 weeks my back was hurting really bad (I had the flu & thought it was from getting up & down going to the bath room) & I didnt realize it but it was back labor; come to find out I was having contractions 1 every 10 mins they gave me fluids & I was fine after a few hours. I was Dehydrated which was what was causeing them. They told me if my back did that again to go straight to L&D because some women have back labor & dont realize they are having contractions.

I'm still hurting today, So if it doesn't ease up in the next hour or so, I believe i'm going to call my OB. Thanks everyone for the help.
