How many weeks are you? Have you called your doctor and told her about your back pain? Is your stomach tightening at all? Are you on bed rest and following it properly?

When you are high risk (or even not) you are suppose to inform your ob of 3-4 contractions an hour. Back pain can also be back contractions, especially if baby is low. Go ahead and call your doc, just to let them know, they may bump up your appt or have you wait, but better to call. Have you been drinking a lot of water? Sometimes with pre-term labor it doesn't fit the standard labor signs. I would try laying down for a while and drinking a LOT of water. Just to see if it helps the pressure and pain. If it doesn't after a few glasses, I would definitely get checked out.

Hopefully everything is alright and she stays in a lot longer . You're still very ealry. It kinda sounds like you want her to come already. Anyways good luck and I would call and stay in bed.

I had pre term labor with both of my boy's but this one has been perfect pregnancy. I am hoping that this little boy will come on his due date which is my birthday Feb 18th close behind yours. But he is staying low the whole pregnancy

I had contractions that hurt and you could time them and nothing would make them stop. Like they tell you to lay on your left side and drink water take a warm bath nothing worked I would have to go to the hospital and get shots to get them to stop. WIth my first he was born at 35 1/2 weeks and my second made it to 39 weeks on his c section date. Good luck I hope your little one stay's until your birthday. :)

Good luck. I am worried a little about this one coming early even though I have had a good pregnancy so far. He is so low he never did move up and I didn't think he could get any lower but he has. I don't go back to the Dr until the 12th. I switched Dr's my other one was a little crazy and takes to many risk for my comfort. But I hope all goes well and you get good news.
