Anyone have any back labor tips?
Most of this pregnancy (even before I knew that my placenta is anterior) I've had back pain. Increased sciatica and frequent lower back spasms.
I kinda knew I was destined for back labor this time around. My mom had it with me and she didn't know she was in labor until her mom forced her into going to the hospital. I was delivered in the labor bed (not the delivery bed.. they had them separated) because she was SO much in labor.
Well, currently I'm only 30 weeks, but last night I could tell I was having back labor and not just pain. My pain was aching and was surging and was radiating towards the front and into my hips. And the only position I could be in where my back didn't feel like it was being squished beneath a huge vehicle was on my hands and knees or squatting. And it made me think...
What positions are recommended for dealing with back labor?
BTW, the pains finally did stop last night a few hours after drowning myself in hydration (drinking a TON) and forcing rest even though I was in pain no matter what I was doing (with the exception of being on my hands and knees and squatting).
