What Do These Symptoms Mean? Preterm Labor Or Not

Hello I was hoping someone would be able to tell me what these symptoms mean, lower back pain, pelvic bone aches, headaches and tightening of the stomache. I've had this all day and have felt like crap all day too, its like I can't get comfortable for nothing, i'm also having more vaginal discharge lately, I went to the dr 3 days ago but she just listened to the baby's heartbeat, am I worrying about nothing. Please help

yeah how far are you? I am 36 weeks and I have the same thing. I am also 2and 1/2 cm dilated.

Are you dilated? To me it sounds like were in the same boat. You need to time how far apart you contractions are. If you dont know how, it is from the end of tighting in your stomache to the beging. Belive me you will know when it happens.

Labor And Delevery
Honestly I would go to the labor and delevery. It never hurts to find out. Better safe than sorry I say now. Yeah my feet are so big it is misserable. I have been sick for four days myself I want to do all this stuff in the house but I just get so nauseated.
