32 weeks pregnant, getting contractions with dizziness, nausea, leg heaviness, weakness, stabbing back pain. Reason?

Hi i am 32 weeks pregnant with my fifth child and this has been the most rough pregnacy to come. But to the problem ... i am having contractions they are not steady but im having quite a few per hour and they are not painful but strong enough that it is uncomfortable and leads to lots of pressure also just now i started having these contractions along with feeling very dizzy and naugeous and legs feel very heavy and weak along with hips and inner thighs. I have also been having lower right back pain on and off and it hurts so bad that i cant move it feels like someone is stabbing me. What could be going on? And fyi baby is overweight he weighed 4 pounds at 30 weeks 3 days and was head down.

Thanks for the query.

These painless contractions are called Braxton Hicks contractions.
The intensity goes on increasing as pregnancy advances.
Other symptoms of lower back pain , pain in the hips is due to stretching ligaments.
This is completely normal and there is nothing to worry about.
Hope this helps,
Dr Nilofer
