  • Ive had 5 kids and had back labor with one. It was aweful LOL. It felt like someone was stabbing my back when I got close to having him. In the early signs I had pelvic pain and also felt like I had ate something bad and back hurt. As I got closer to having him it was an aweful sharp pains in my back. Thats what i remember most with him.

  • I felt it mostly in my back but, when it got really intense I felt it in my stomach as well.

  • i had all back labor and thats the only place i felt it was my back. it was awful. the best thing to do to ease the pain is (and yes it sounds crazy) get on all fours and rock back and forth, it pulls the baby from your tailbone and use tennis balls up and down your back to relax the muscles

  • I had back labor. It was severe cramping and tightening, but I also could feel it in my stomach. It was hard to tell it was in my stomach when I was in strong back labor, but if I put my hands on my stomach I could feel it.

  • My contractions would begin in my belly then radiate around to my back and then down my legs, it was miserable. One thing that helped was this: I would lay on my side and my husband would place counter pressure on my hip in other words he would press down - fairly hard - on my hip, I remember begging him to do it harder and he finally said that he was afraid he was going to break my hip! lol I had a couple of bruises when it was all said and done, but wow it sure did help. Also the tennis ball on my back helped alot too
