im 36wks today, last few days on and off, be having backaches, can't lean over much, tummy feels as if someone is trying to make me breathe in. I got told on sunday I had braxton hicks, but if I keep getting this feeling on and off, just me having braxton hicks again, like they say?Today I got up and had really badache and getting out of bed hurt a bit, lasted probably a few minutes, then it was gone. Lately in the last few days,have to go toilet like 5,6 times, in early hours of morning and like nearly every hour, before I properly woke up.

Urinary tract infections can cause you to need the toilet frequently, and can also cause back ache and braxton hicks.

It could also be practise contractions, getting ready for labour. It's worth contacting your midwife.
