I know backpain is completely normal around this time in pregnancy (26 weeks) but my back is hurting like its period cramping mixed with sharp pain only on my left side. Is that how its supposed to be?

I'm 36 weeks and I have had those pains for at least the last 3 weeks. My doctor said it's normal and being pregnant causes a lot of pain and it's different in every pregnancy. If it turns into contractions though then you're probably in labor. I had back labor with my first and it felt similar to those pains your describing but I started having contractions along with it
