no harmful radiation exposure during the pregnancy.the back pain is because of your belly increasing size putting pressure on back muscle.also contributing is, they might have pricked your back when doing caesarean section for anesthesia. rest. support your belly while standing.

this type of back pain is normal in pregnancy. its due the effect of the uterus on back bones. but doctor says if back pain is associated with pain in the abdomen or bleeding in vagina and water coming from the vagina. then you should be more careful.

I am 34, and 38 weeks pregnant. I know what back pain is like, I have chronic back pain and have had a microdiscectomy L5-S1 in 2007. I have had a sensation but it has increased in the past 2 weeks. The sensation starts in my lower back and moves up to my head, then finishes in my chest. It feels like a pulsating electrical charge that is quite painful and stops me in my tracts. It goes away if I change my position. It feels like an adernaline rush up my spine. Im not thinking it labor pains, because it is not radiating to my tummy. I can t try and have orgasim because it causes the sensation. It is quite paralysing. I have a doctors appointment monday, but I worried because it is happened quite often if I get into the wrong position.

Hello! I am 35 weeks pregnant. Started itching all over body especially palms and soles. Doctor advised lfts. Alp-210 Sgot -32u/L Sgpt-37U/L The obg suggested close fetal monitoring with ctg n lft repeats and is suspecting obstetric cholestasis. She suggested early labor induction once I complete 37 weeks. I am not vry sure if the diagnosis is not confirmed...do I go ahead with the labour induction & continue monitoring till my due date n wait for normal labour to start? Evrythings perfect with me and I was looking forward to a normal delivery. N I am strictly against c sections and I heard labor inductions in first timers 60% of the times end up in c sections. Please advise! Thnks!

the baby was born yesterday and since then the baby is having hiccups and has been monitored by ECG and not been fed and is on IV what could be the reason? The doctors have been telling that the reason is because the baby drank the fluid in the womb. It was a c-section delivery.
