  • I had all back labor. It was very uncomfortable and painful. I never experienced anything other than labor. When I went into the hospital, they broke my water themselves. Some people have different symptoms. All you can do is check with the hospital. But, from my experience, you will know when you are in labor!

  • I didn't have much, but my babies were anterior.
    Do you know how your baby is facing? Have you worked on positions to coax baby to move? When labor starts it might be nice to avoid back labor. But labor might move baby for you~ less comfortably.

    You might try to get rid of your back pain soon for a more pleasant experience. Good luck!

  • I had back labor with my first but not with my second. The first baby was posterior and had a turned face, i couldn't feel any pain on the front at all, it all came from the back. It was the lower back not the middle part.
