  • lol. I read your question, and I replied with "Sucks"
    Back labor, for me... was excruciating. I had front and back.
    So.. i can't describe the back labor individually - I do know that it felt like a vice was around my mid-section, and with every contraction, I'd writhe on the bed - it'd get tighter and tighter, like I was about to be cut in half.
    And it's true. You honestly can not talk during a bad contraction. Just growl like a feral cat. xD

  • Intense back pain during labor, really focused in that area, (especially while contracting) although the front area can hurt with the contractions, too.

    Are you worried about it, or are you in labor?
    The baby would be posterior positioned (baby's back against your back).

  • Do you get that lower back pain with your period? For me that is exactly what it felt like only 100 times stronger!

  • It hurts like hell. cant tell you what it feels like because I never felt that type of pain before. But I know that front labor is like a walk in the park compared to back.
