Painful to stand/walk


Q: I'm 38 weeks pregnant. This is my 3rd pregnancy. During delivery of my first my uterus ruptured and I had an emergency c-section. My second pregnancy went fine, also a c-section. With this pregnancy I'm scheduled for a c-section in 10 days. Right now my baby is supposed to weigh from 9 1/2 to over 10 pounds. I'm huge. My problem is that every time I stand up or walk it feels like I'm being stabbed in the stomach and gets me almost to the point of tears. When I sit down I'm fine. So my question is should I go to labor and delivery or tough it out until my Dr appt Monday?

Symptoms:  Stabbing stomach pains
