Where do you feel the "back pain" during contractions?

First off im not in labor or feeling this but am just wondering what to look out for when I do start getting them (if i do, some ppl dont have back labor) I know about the first signs of cramping but am unsure where the back pain will be starting, lower back? How low? Middle?

  • low as in between your hips, but honestly you can feel it a little higher too. You will know because its a cramping sensation, can be on the sides, low, high, all over....good luck. :o)

  • It can be anywhere from the middle part of your back and lower. When i was having contractions last week thats where it was. But some people dont feel it at all.

  • im 36 weeks and woke up with dull ache in my lower back today prolly 3 inches above my tailbone. Didnt think anything about it. Start of labor soon? Or maybe just slept wrong?

  • you stated "some people dont have back labor" but the truth is, most people dont have back labor! If your baby is facing the right direction then you wont have back labor at all so I wouldnt focus too much on stressing on that one
