  • Maybe. Or baby is pressing into your back.
    Do you know if baby is posterior again?

  • It could be, try to walk the house and see if they get more intense or closer together! thats what they will make you do in the hospital anyways! good luck i hope this is it for you!

  • Do you know if the baby is in a position to cause back labor again? (Head-down, but "sunny side up")
