im needing some info from moms that have had back labor. im trying to understand back labor and how you can tell anything about contractions while having it. when in back labor do you still feel regular contractions in front? also if not, how do you time them? i am 40 weeks and at 4 cent now, i was checked yesterday and given another membrain sweep to try and get things going, my doctor is saying that the baby has been in place and seems ready but i was getting no contractions to get labor started. this morning i woke up with horrible painful low back pain, not regular pain in this area we usually get. it goes down my back into the back of my legs and the pain almost seems to burn. am i having back labor? its a constant pain so i cant really time anything, how can you really tell?
