It sounds like backache rather than contractions, but give your doctor a ring. He/ she knows your pregnancy history and can assess whether to see you earlier or not.

It is good to know that we are at a stage where should we go into labour, our babies would survive. I have a feeling that I may go into premature labour, but my baby is still high up so I guess I am just anxious.
Still awaiting responses from other ladies.

Thanx for the info.

I had a normal birth with my first child.I was in labour for 29 hours.She was in the incubator for a day bacause she could not regulate her body temp.

I guess the nausea is because of all the pressure.
I cant understand it I didn't have any of this with my daughter!

Hi Ma
I am also 28 weeks and have been feeling a bit quesy as well the past week, I was wondering whether morning sickness was coming back. I do not have period like pains but my lower back is very stiff. May I ask how your 1st child was born, C-section or normal and did the baby have to stay in an incubator? I would also be interested in the ladie's answers to your questions.
