I am 36 weeks pregnant I make 9 mnths on saturday and I have been having stomach,back,and pelvic pains and I can't make a vial movement. I went to the hospital the other night they told me I was having contractions but I wasn't dialated yet. The nurse said that she could feel the baby head but I had to wait 2 more weeks to have the baby.And my stomach tightens up.I was wondering if you could tell me what's going on and what should I do?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The uterine contractions and your symptoms could suggest onset of early labour or uterine overactivity. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/obstetrician and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Your gynecologist might want to rule out false labour pain and look for wellbeing of the baby. If the symptoms are increasing in intensity, visit your obstetrician/midwife for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
