She is almost 7 months pregnant & says she is feeling the baby a lot more than her first. She is worried she is going to go into labor. Also she is having more streching pains, than with her first. Sometimes even getting up hurts. It has been 9 years since her first & she is a little older, but should we worry?

A certain amount of aches & pains are normal at the end of pregnancy, but they can be unnerving, especially if you didn't experience them first time round.

I don't think you need to worry just yet.. the stretching pains sound normal. The baby is getting big now & is running out of room in there!

If she thinks she's going into labour she should contact her doctor/midwife straight away.. but for now she should just try & relax, worrying isn't helping the situation.
