  • It could be everything that leandrat mentioned or early back labor. Is it a backache or pains that come and go like contractions? I had back labor and it was awful, but it was time-able just like regular contractions are, not just a normal mild backache.

  • its mostly when i'm sitting up. my posture is right so i know its not from sitting the wrong way. but it feels like i've been sitting in the wrong postion allll day long.
