"back contraction"

I had one contraction today that hurt my lower back really bad! It was at 11:44 this afternoon. It felt like someone was taking my lower back stretching my spine! It lasted for about one minute, and I have not had one since. Could this be labor, or just the baby leaning funny? Its 1:10 now, and I'm only having my regular BH contractions, which I have had for months now. I know labor is consistent, but this was just really painful! So I had to say something about it, and get some opinions. Thanks :)

  • Mine felt like that and I agree with candle5...I hope yours is not back labor. I did it unmedicated with pitocin and could have broken the bedrail I was squeezing it so hard.
