I am 34 weeks pregnant wiht my second child. My first pregnancy was horrible and I as on bed rest and tons of medication so I had no clue about labor untill my water broke.

For the past week I have been having very sporadic and painful contractions and horrible back pain. I t gets worse if I am up walking around a lot like while shopping. I am now also having a little bit of pressure and now I am very nauseous all of the time and actually get sick a few times a day. I also am having more trouble sleeping and get pelvic pain so bad sometimes I can hardly get out of bed even to go to the bathroom. Is this my bodys way of telling me that labor is right around the corner?

Sounds like braxton hicks, but if it's a while before your next OB appt, you might want to at least call the office and tell them about it. I went through that with every pregnancy after the 1st. Each one started a little earlier, and got a little worse (I have 4 kids).
