    Default Back labour signs???

    Hi ladies, what are the signs of back labour? My back has been sore all day. But it seems to come and go. But I cant seem to time it and I cant seem to feel if my uterus is going rock hard. Called the midwives and they said to keep an eye on it.

    My back labours were both characterised by pain in my lower back with each contraction- I could still definitely feel them in the ring. Have you been told your baby is posterior? Both mine were, hence the "back labour".

    Nah all I know is she is head down. She has been moving a lot. So could have moved posterior. My next ob app isnt till next week. I have been trying to time them but I just cant. I am only 34 weeks.

    It sounds like just good old back pain, if there's no rhyme or reason and it's not coinciding with uterine tightenings and pain and you're only 34 weeks. I found heat packs and warm baths helped a bit

    Yep, this was my experience too.
