it sounds like you are in early labor. Ask your Mid-wife the position of your baby. This would be the reason you are having back labor. As for your dilation and effacement you are in early labor. Remember you efface before you dilate. Try taking a warm bath and taking some benadryl to help you sleep. Remember if your water breaks or you have UC's every 5 mins you should go to Labor and Delivery.
