Pregnant, sharp pain on sides and top of stomach, pain on moving, dark orange urine. Cause of worry?

I am 36 weeks pregnant and since yesterday morning I have been having episodes where my sides and top of my stomach have a very sharp pain where I can t move because it hurts so bad. It s been happening every two hours and I would wake up bc the pain is intense. I have been drinking a lot of water but it looks dark when I pee. I felt a little bit leaking so I checked and it was orange when I wiped. Should I be worried?

Hello Brittany,

Thanks for posting on HCM,

You are pregnant, have abdominal pain every 2hrs (which apparently is not braxton hick's contractions-correct me if I am wrong) and you have dark orange urine, I say you require medical attention. You might be suffering from pylonephritis on pregnancy and urine analysis might be needed to exclude that. You should check your blood pressure as you might be having pre-ecclampsia (which is a pregnancy complication).
Now you mentioned you were leaky (suppose it is from your vagina), that might be sign that you are having a preterm labor or premature rupture of membrane (if the abdominal pains are not crampy or contractions). I suggest you go to the ER as soon as you can.

Hope this helps in time
