  • Sounds like normal pregnancy back pain to me. Try doing some yoga, especially the pelvic tilt (cat/cow pose). BH contractions feel like your belly is tensing up and getting hard. They can be rather uncomfortable and they even hurt some women. But you won't feel them in your back, and contractions come and go, they don't hang out for 2 hours :)
