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.

hi, im 24 weeks w/twins. i know for myself i have had cramping  and back aches pretty much throughout my whole pregnancy. i asked my doctor about it and he reassured me that its normal as long as im not bleeding or having abnormally heavy discharge. which i have not had either. if you ever want reassurance its absolutely ok to consult with your doctor. good luck and hope all goes perfect!! :)
Call your doctor and talk to a nurse. Back pain can sometimes be a sign of early labor. While you're probably just fine, your doctor may want to see you to make sure.
I had back pain from 25 weeks untill my daughter was born, My doctor said around that time it's normal for your back to hurt because you are carrying more weight in the front.. Just to be safe it doesn't hurt to call your doctor.. Back pain can be a sign of early labor..
