Back pain

Why is my upper back, like my shoulder blades in severe pain? It hurts so bad, like unbearable.

HI and thanks for using the forum.

There are a lot of possible causes for this pain, including labor.  So, you need to let your ob/gyn know about this.  He or she can evaluate you.  If they determine that you are not in labor, it could be the position of your baby, you could have a kidney infection, it could be an issue with your gallbladder, among others.  Your doctor will have to look into this further if the pain persists.  Good luck and congratulations on your pregnancy.
