I'm going to be 36 weeks this Saturday and I am wondering if what I'm feeling is a precursor to labor or just normal aches and pains. My entire pregnancy, I don't think I have ever felt a BH contraction - or anything that I'd consider a contraction. Maybe my pain threshold is high? The past few days, I have had what I consider medium grade low back pain. It is right above my tailbone and it doesn't go away, no matter how I lay/sit/stand. Walking helps a little bit. It doesn't radiate to the front of my belly/pelvis at all. My last appointment (33.5 weeks), I was not dilated at all. I have my 36 week appointment next Tuesday.
Just kind of wondering if labor is something where I will know it when it happens? What about back labor? What does that feel like?
Sorry, I'm a noob. :-)
