How do you know if you are having bak labor? I've been having some serious back pains, it started out feeling like it was a pinched nerve and now it's just really bad back cramps, it started a few days ago, no bleeding, it's just my lower back is in alot of pain....

Are you having any contractions at all? Any change in discharge? I'd call your doc just to be on the safe side - it may just be that your back has flared up due to ligament changes, etc, but it doesn't hurt to check.

I would definitely call your doctor. I had back labor with my last pregnancy and never felt any real contractions because I felt all the pain in my back. Even when we got to the hospital and they hooked me up to the monitors, the contractions were registering, but I never felt any in my pelvic area until later on in labor. My son was occiput posterior - meaning his face came out face up instead of face down. This is why I felt so much pain in my back. Let us know what the doctor says.

Momtbc: How far along were you? I'm only 24 weeks so i dont know if i should be concerned about it or if it's just normal pregnancy back pain...I'm a pretty pet_t person so there is now a whole lot of extra weight i'm carrying around....

Shygirly get it checked just in case - preterm labor can happen at any time. Hopefully it's just the normal aches and pains though!

I had my first bout with the back labor at 32 weeks. I went into the hospital for preterm labor symptoms and they were able to stop the labor with terbutaline. I went in again after being up all night with back pain and bleeding at 36 weeks. Again, they were able to stop the preterm labor with terbutaline. But I was put on a regimine I had to keep up at home until 37 weeks. I finally delivered at 38 weeks with extreme back labor pains. Definitely have this checked out. Better safe than sorry.
