Severe back pain during pregnancy

If you are experiencing severe back pain during your third trimester you might be in labor. For some women contractions are only felt in the back. The back pain during labor could be constant or it can come and go.

During the other stages of pregnancy mild back pain is normal due to the growth of the baby, increases weight and change in your posture. Back pain caused by normal aches should go away with rest and a good nights sleep.

Some medical problems and complications can cause back pain. As a general rule anything that is severe or comes on suddenly should be reported to your doctor. If you symptoms do not go away or ease up after getting some rest then you should consult your doctor.
