Advice? KatieJoAnn 1 child; Cedar Rapids, IA, United States 111 posts

So, I was at work for like 2 hrs and starting just feeling shitty, and getting a really bad sharp pain on the ride side of my body throughout the middle of my back. I sat down for like 20 mins, I drank a glass of water, ate. And it still hurts. I'm gonna try to take a warm bath. I'm almost 31 weeks and yes he's already turned... I'm thinking maybe he's just sitting on my spine or nerve??? Because it's been about 2 1/2 hrs and the pain hasn't gone away. It's gotten worse and felt a little better, but hasn't gone away and definitely feels nothing like contractions or at least my braxon hicks. Plus he's moving. So, idk? Any other advice? Because I really don't wanna go to the doctor because I feel as though he's fine, plus I'm stubborn and hate going to the hospital, especially if it's for nothing....

Is it up near your shoulder blade ? This happened to me, I had pre e and hellps syndrome. Go get checked.

What's that? And it's kinda in my shoulder but at this very moment it's in my right rib like right underneath my b**b and kinda in my chest (I'm also laying on my back though) Like if I sit up the pain goes throughout my back more.

That sounds like how I was. Pre eclampsia is when you get high blood pressure and protein in your urine. The only cure is to deliver the baby. I was pretty drugged out when I found out because of the pain but hellps syndrome developed and my liver was enlarged, causing the pain

It's fine I just wasn't sure.... So, it was on your right side? And I just had an OB appt like a week ago, and everything was fine.. Like I haven't had any blood pressure problems, or problems with my urine... Could it really just like happen over night like that?

think you should call your dctor and tell them your symptoms, they will let you know whether or not you need to come in, at least you would have peace of mind if it is nothing

Yeah, I just have that feeling that they're gonna think I'm dumb.

Yeah, I ended up going to the hospital, they told me it was how he was sitting. But than I ended up going back in there Thursday because I had gotten sick at work because of the pain.... I just got out yesterday, they thought I was borderline pre clasmea, but my levels had dropped (why they let me go) so, they think I pulled my rib and got an infection... I'm supposed to "take it easy" basically bedrest til I see my OB again, which is Monday, and they're gonna run more tests to make sure my levels aren't going back up. But they told me Friday, I believe it was that if I was a couple weeks further along they would have induced me or gave me an emergency c section, but since I'm just over 31 weeks they wanted to see about getting my levels down, which they did. Thank god. Baby is an "over achiever" according to the doctors & measuring a week and 2 days ahead... my body is just messing up...
