Has anyone experienced a posterior birth where most of the pain was felt in the back? How did you know you were in labour if you didn't feel normal contractions?
DS was posterior so I had back pain/early labour for a long time before waters broke. I didn't get any contractions that I could feel because the back pain was so intense. It was only after they induced me that they realised I was having contractions and couldn't feel it.
I'm aiming for a VBAC this time and as bub is posterior I'm freaking out that the same thing will happen. I'm starting to get period pain and back pain but I know it started around 36 weeks last time too (I'm 36+3 now) and waters didn't break until 41 weeks.
I'm so worried it will end in another c-section if I don't know I'm in labour or go to the hospital too quickly.
I really assumed this time would be easier and I'd have a drug free VBAC
