Back Labor

How do you know that your in labor when it's all in your back? My baby girl has been head down for about 2 months now. and I'm not due until November 25th but the past couple weeks i have been feeling pelvic pains and it is just at night time well it has been all day non quitting and I saw where annoymous person had posted something similar to me and i just read what people tolld her but i mean it's all just in my back lower back anyways and the pelvic aches has been all day non stop and just feeling of like she said heaviness down there. I geuss u could say i'm new at this. should i just wait for my water to break or the pains to get more intense?

  • I had back labor with 2 of my pregnancies. You still have to go by the general rules of labor. You will still have contractions that will make your belly hard and the back pain and pelvic pressure will increase during contractions. Try walking around for a while. If the contractions get more intense, you are in labor. If the contractions stop or stay the same it is probably Braxton Hicks.
