jenn95 - January 10

hi guys. i am posting this here instead of in "discomfort" because i think that my backache is probably worse because of the twins. i am 31 weeks now and for the past 2 days my backache has been excrutiating. throughout the pregnancy i had backaches, but this is nothing like i ever had before. yesterday i had it for a few hours and took a hot shower, a tylenol and went to sleep. and even during the night i was tossing and turning from the pain. this morning it was better but here we go again! sometimes it goes along with light contractions(bh i guess) and some baby movement. anyone have any ideas? if again tomorrow morning it doesn't go away i think i'll go to my regular dr, not my gyn. last night i noticed it was worse when i was sleeping on my left side,which is usually the most comfortable way to sleep. help!

Jenn95, let me know what the doc says, just remember that most real contractions start in the lower back and go around to the front. Back labor is also a possibliltiy. I would consult your OB doc.

Jenn, are your babies breeched or transverse, because if they are both transverse, my doctor told me that this is the most uncomfortable position for mom.

i'm not going to go tho the dr today because at the moment i'm feeling better. we'll see how things go. sorry emunah, i'm dumb, i don't know what transverse means. one baby is with b___t down and one is lying across. is that transverse? if it is then i guess your dr is right! hurts like a *#%!

You are not dumb jenn, I also didn't know what they meant until I looked them up online! My babies are in EXACTLY the same position as yours. Baby a is breech - which means b___t down (or it could also mean feet down), and baby B is transverse, which means lying accross. I actually have more pain on my pubic bone area, I feel like someone smashed it with a baseball bat (sorry for the graphic comparison) but that's how it feels! We just have to hang in there. BTW, which part of Israel do you live in? I have tons of family there, including my parents and 2 brothers.

i live in kfar saba ,if that means anything to you (most people don't know where that is). where is your family? do you ever visit? well, i don't suppose you will now, with twins on the way! where do you live now? my back is feeling ok at the moment, how are you feeling?

You're right Jenn, I do not know where Kfar Saba is, although I have heard of it. My parents and 1 brother live in Beitar Illit, my other brother lives in Jerusaem, as for the extended relatives, they live all over from north to south. I actually was just in Israel with my sister about 7 weeks ago (doctor gave me the ok to go). We went as a surprise for my mom for her birthday, and it was fantastic! I love Israel. I am feeling ok I guess, will post further as time goes on.
