    I was induced and when they ruptured my membrane bubs was anterior but ended up being born posterior, so he turned at some point during my labour. I don't remember any back pain, so either I didn't get any or by that stage I was pushing (pushed for 2.5 hours) and the relief from the pushing dulled the back pain??

    I had contractions in my back for 8-10 hours a day every day for a week before my labour "technically" started. I then had a 40+ hour labour. But I wasn't told bub was posterior until the second day in. I hadn't read up on posterior labour or know about different positions etc i think the back pain is really reduced by different positions etc
