  • Back labor *is* true labor~ it's the kind of labor you're having. When labor starts, if baby is "posterior," then you're having back labor.

  • Does it come and go? With back labor it just like regular labor, the contractions come and go, not just a back ache. Can you time it inbetween the pain? I had it with my first and third and it was just awful.

  • Back pain is not "back labor."
    Back labor is the term for what is going on when a woman goes into labor with her baby facing her back (backwards from the usual "anterior").

    So if you're not contracting then it's not labor or back labor, no.
    BUT baby could be posterior~ when you start labor it could then be back labor.
    If you think baby is posterior there are ways to coax baby to turn.

  • Then I would say that you aren't in labor yet. I believe just a constant back ache can be a sign that labor is coming.

  • Constant back pain is not back labor, back labor means that you have contractions (they come and go) that start in your back instead of the front.
