Did anyone get alot of pain in the last 4-5 weeks of their pregnancy? If so what was it and did the doctors or hospital say it's just normal?

Oh yes. Your pelvic bone is loosening and the cartilage is getting softer and spreading apart, your ligaments are stretching and you are just miserable all around. Plus contractions, back pain, etc.

I had a lot of pains during my last couple months of pregnancy and my doctors said it was completely normal....they told me it was just the baby moving into position to get ready for birth...and they told me that the lower back pains that i was having were probably just small contractions...

I had alot of pain very much the same as everyone else has had, but i did start getting realy bad pains in my back (i thought i was in labour. lol, i didnt know how it felt) but i went to the hospital and they said i had a realy bad urine infection that was making me contract, the put me on a drip and i had to stay in hospital for a few days, so just be carful that it isnt that, the docs say it can be stressful for the baby.

I too experienced pain when I neared the end of my pregnancy, I was carrying a massive amount of amniotic fluid, and rolling over at night became impossible, walking became so painful, my hips hurt, my ribs hurt (from baby kicking me so hard!!) ......but to be honest, the worst pain was in my back. I spoke to my midwife and my GP, who told me to take it easy, and the pain would subside post-partum...... Believe me, any pain you experience before labour, during labour, or after labour is all worth it when you cuddle that little bundle.

Yes more pain in the end is very normal. Especially sharp shooting pains in your lower abdomen and vaginal area. Once your baby drops it is the worst, but it will all end soon and you will have a miracle in your arms!

Oh yes! I had LOTS! My pelvic bones hurt sooo bad! I felt like I was carring a 10lb bowling ball around all the time! Very uncomfortable! I could hardly even flip from side to side in my bed as I slept because my pelvic bones hurts so bad! The last trimester is tough! Walking is hard too! Hang in there it only gets better :)

There is alot of pressure going on at the end of pregnancy, I told my doc I was having tons of pain in my belly and lower stomach and it was mostly round ligament pain and also contractions. I am sure everything is perfectly normal with you.
