38w4d today and since yesterday I've been experiencing aching lower back that radiates into tops of my thighs. It's not what I would say is painful but the ache of it causes me to stop, and hold the bench or wall as it makes me instantly tired. These r usually followed instantly with a super tight tummy.
I've had Braxton hicks throughout this pregnancy and I still get them but I'm wondering if the backache that spreads is just a slight variation of a contraction?
I just had 6 in the shower and I dont feel intensity in worsening but the frequency perhaps, they come in clusters then I'll have nothing.
Also diarrhea for past week on and off.
Anyone experience this kind of backache?
