8 months pregnant post L4L5 discetomy

So I am 8 months pregnant and was feeling great until a few weeks ago. I had a discetomy in June 2014.
All of a sudden my hips / butt / back are so sore - it's hard to walk and moving in bed is nearly impossible. I am not sure is its related to past back issues or just the pregnancy.
I guess my main concern is can my back handle the strain of labour and pushing?
Anyone else been through this?

    Wow girl, you're 8 months? I'm proud of you for making it that far with so much pain! How are you doing now? I apologize I have no experience with that, but I'm wondering if it is possible to make it full term having had a discectomy or a fusion. I'm wishing you well, and you're in the home stretch!
