Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

28 weeks pregnant with consistant mild cramping and low back pain...

1 answers
I am 28 weeks pregnant and for the past 24 hours or so I have been experiencing mild cramping in my lower abdomen. I do walk a lot at work, but this is the first time I have had this type of feeling. I am also having pretty bad low back pain. Its hard for me to tell if this is normal because this is my first pregnancy.. Should I go to the doctor, or wait it out??

You should call your doctor. It can be hard to tell what is normal and what is cause for concern when it's your first baby. You could be experiencing round ligament pain in your abdomen, but with intense back pain and having both last consistently, I would call. And if your doctor doesn't have an after hours line, call the labor and delivery department of the hospital where you will be delivering.
