a tiny bit of lower back pain that isn't seeming to go away. its not to painful just very uncomfortable. the baby isn't moving much ( already dropped and in a head down position) and i have a very BAD case of diarrhea (for the past 3 days but today is THE WORST) and the day before yesterday i would vomiting. i am very tired and have absolutely no energy to get myself going ( just last night i was cleaning the house) are these normal symptoms late in pregnancy? should i contract my doctor?

this sounds like you body is getting ready for labor!!! My back hurt sooo much just before I went into labor and I had diarrhea bad! Have you had any contractions? If you start to feel any contractions I would definitely contact your doctor. I know its like you have know energy but yet you are cleaning cleaing away, which that is called nesting. That too is a sign of the upcoming event of labor. So I would say that you dont have too much longer to go!

Good luck

seems to me like you are having Braxton Hicks contractions; i am 31 weeks; and i have lower back pain that doesnt go away; as for the fatigue; you may have low iron; takin perscribed iron pills may help with that alot.

Yes, dear alot of this is normal. If you haven't had the baby by now, I'd be surprised. Your water breaks you get to the hospital, this would be a clear water coming out from your p p but it isn't p. The fluid that surrounds the baby, sometimes the sac will break and you will go into labor immediately, but don't worry, it's normal, just quickly go. Right now if you haven't already given birth you need to relax, have your bag packed and be ready for the event to take place. Yes it is normal to be having backaches and weak and tired a few days before delivery. Girl, I've had 3 children and been there for the births of 3 grandchildren. thank lucky stars the baby's head in down in the birth canal right. I had 2 breech (one was feet first and another butt first). I had 3 by the time I was 21 years old. I know alot about fear and worry and wonder about childbirth. Especially when you might not have anyone to support you through this time. Soon it will be over if it isn't already and I pray you and your baby will be just fine.
