Pressure at 30 weeks?

Is it normal to be having lower back pressure as well as lower abdominal pressure at 30 weeks? For any of those who responded to my post yesterday about the contractions about 15 min apart, I never was able to reach my doctor and am still having them. I havnt tried to call my doc because I am beginning to feel like a hypocondraic. What should I do?

I forgot to mention I have also been having severe pain in my lower right side of my abdomen when the baby moves. It is very painful any idea on what this could be?

Thanks I called my doc and they want me to go to L&D. It just confuses me that I am on 20 mg of procartia 6x a day and this is still happening. When you say the baby flipped over what does that mean I dont want to sound stupid

he was breech and instead of slowly going head down he did it in one big jolt causing shock to my uterus... go figure...dont worry no questions are stupid.. Go into the L&D and keep us posted...It is better to be safe than sorry.. They will monitor you..you might spend a few hours there or longer...but you will be well taken care of...why are you taking procartia?

I am back... They said everything looked fine but I have had a cold and they said it turned into a small infection. More meds to take and I feel crappier than I did before I went. Thanks for all your help.
