     You should call your doctor and let them know. He or she can advise you on whether this is something to worry about or not. ((HUGS))

    I would call the doctor and just let them know.

    It's hard to tell. You could be 3cm for weeks or you could go right to 10 in minutes. Especially since you're full term.

    It's better to call them and see what they think. You could be having back labor. It's what it sounds like.

    Sometimes it takes a while to dialate, but I am concerned about your swollen back. I think you should definitely see your OB.

     yes I agree, call the dr and ask about the swollen back. to ease the pain in your lower back, get on the floor on your hands and knees, lower your head down towards the floor with your bottom still up

    I'm not sure that this is something that is too irregular but I would call and check with your doctor just to make sure. Its always better to be safe than sorry.  :)
