  • Labor, or BH?
    Both started in my stomach, but in labor, they soon moved to my back. I'd had back pain throughout pregnancy, so back labor was no big shock.

  • yea thats what mine were like gabby. like cramps and they went on for days very lightly so i just ignored them when they didn't go anywhere... more so they were really just a dull ache that barely registered on my pain scale. thats why i asked. ive got 5 weeks and a few days to go ... i went to the er a few days ago cuz i thought i was loosing my mucus plug.. i felt weird and super tired... turns out i was having contractions. the nursed asked me if i felt them i told her no. she gave me a look like How..?

  • I had back labor and I felt it from the start.

  • I had contractions for 4 months and 5 months but they never went anywhere. I had no idea I was having them with my first until I told my midwife I was getting out of breath really easily which was making me even more naseous. She hooked me up and I was having contractions. With my 2nd I had the same kind. When I went into active labor both times the contractions were in my stomach. With my 2nd I had back labor between delivering the baby and delivering the placenta (I delivered the placenta at the same time as the baby with my first).
