Pregnant with pressure and burning in lower abdomen, vaginal discharge. Back pain. Pre- labor symptoms?

Hello, I am 33 weeks pregnant and he is very low so it is putting a lot of pressure on my lower abdomen . I have had a change in discharge in the passed couple weeks and one night there was burning in the lower abdomen. Since then, there has been a lot of pressure in the front of my belly, like he s trying to crawl out or something. It gets a little extreme sometimes and it feels like I either need to hold my belly up, or lay down. Sometimes sitting or laying takes the pressure off the front but not always. I am also having back pain . My four year old daughter was early. Is there is a possibility I am having signs of pre labor symptoms?

Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

In the setting of a prior preterm birth, and now with symptoms of pelvic pressure, increased discharge, and possible symptoms of contractions (low back pain) you need to be evaluated immediately. Your cervix needs to be checked manually, and ideally, with ultrasound as well. Call your doctor immediately!

I hope that this helps and good luck!!
