30 weeks help!


So I'm about 30 weeks pregnant w my third baby. My Dr is about an hour away. I've never been in labor by myself. So I don't know what to expect. Anyway I've been having a lot of pressure pain in my pelvis area when I walk. Also slight pain in my back and inner thighs. I'm not sure if I should call my Dr or if this is normal? My belly also tight on and off. What shall I do? It's an hour drive to my Dr.

I have never experienced labor so I can't comment there, but if you are worried you should call your doctor. Explain what you are feeling and ask if you should come in.

It may just be aches and pains , but I'd definitely get checked out asap as you don't want a surprise early delivery at home .

I agree call and ask and see what they say. When I went into labour it was very obviously labour but I was full term so it may be completely different at 30 weeks. You won't regret calling/going in if everything turns out to be nothing or just BH, but you might regret not calling/going in if you get into a sticky situation at home! Hope everything turns out ok. It's most likely not labour but always best to be sure.

Could be Braxton Hicks but like the other ladies I would call. Hope all is well!

I agree. Best to checked out just in case. It's probably braxton Hicks but I'd see the doctor, even if it's just to put your mind at rest. Hope your okay! x

Personally I'd just try and take a rest or a bath and take it easy for the rest of the day. Get hydrated too, and see what happens. I know for me, when I'm having actual contractions they really really HURT, so I would know if something was actually happening vs braxton hicks. If it didn't let up over the next few days I'd call. That's what I'd do personally. When I was having lots of BH I was advised to hydrate and rest.

OP, I'm in the same situation as you but I don't know if it's just the after effects of gastro or early labour. I forgot to mention it to my midwife today when I saw her but I'm also keeping a close eye on things. I think because I go into labour on my own and have never needed to be induced and the hospital is only a 15 minute trip for me. If you are concerned, try timing and tracking and if you think you are seeing a pattern, ring the doctor as others have said and take his advice from that point.

With caution though. If this is pre-term labour, taking a bath or shower will kick labour into gear. I'd personally not and rather see if there is any regularity to the pains over an hour or so first.

Dr wanted me to come in some I did. Found out baby's head is down in my pelvis and engaged already, causing my pain. I'm not dialed thank god but baby really really low for 30 weeks. I'm on bed rest now. Dr told me to pack my hospital bag early this time around because he thinks baby coming sooner then planned. Ugh. Oh and dr estimate baby around 4lbs already. I'm praying he stays cooking for another 6-7 weeks at least. I'm not ready yet!!
