Back labour

I didn't have any cramping or back labor with dd so I font know what it feels like. Right now I feel like I have been clenching my bumcheeks for the last one hundred days. Is this back labor or just a weird achy thing? It started at Canadian tore when I was buying paint and I almost cried out! I'm imbed right now trying not to move and it's a lot better but as soon as I stand up it hurts. Seems pretty low to be labor but I have no idea.

Hmm, not cool. Back labour can be pretty low though.

I've been having terrible back pain occasionally, but it's much higher.

Drink lots of water, and stay in bed for a while. Hopefully it subsides Sad If it's disappearing when you lie down I think that's a good sign.

Thanks! I have a couple of shows recorded that I'd like to watch I guess today's the day!

For me, I had bad pain at my lowback and tail bone with pain going down my legs, it hurt to sit on the exercise ball, (so I did not), it was rather excruciating.
They say to do positions where you are on your hands and knees,etc, but I cannot remember all of the positions that will move baby to a more optimum position.
Hope you feel better soon!

I had a simular feeling the day before I went into labor. I did not have back labor though, but I have read that lower back pain is a 'precurser' to labor.....

I've also heard that it can be a sign of very early labor. Hope all is well! :bigarmhug:

I had horrible back labor with my first baby, and I definitely didn't feel it in my buttcheeks lol! You'll know if it's real back labor, as it feels like you've been hit by a truck... in the back. He's hoping it's not that!!
