If You Have Bad Lower Back Pain Is That A Contraction

Maureen - September 30

I will be 39 weeks tomorrow and have been having lower back pain here and there. But I have not had any Classic signs of Contractions yet. When I get lower back pain, could that be the Contractions? And does that mean I will have a very painful Labour? Pls let me know! I'll be delivering anytime soon!

HI maureen. I am at 32 weeks and i have been getting severe back pain for the last month. I dont think it would be a contraction. I get it sometimes where it sort of jars my back up for a second or too. I was told its just the baby putting pressure on your spine. Contractions from what i hear are in the abdomen so i wouldnt worry just yet. good luck wid ur bubby

it could very well be contractions i would talk to your doc about it my friend had back labor threw her whole preg thank god i have never had to deal with it from what i hear it is painful but does not mean that you are going to have a painful labor or difficult..Good luck

When I had the back pain it was because the baby dropped, so maybe that is why..it went away thank god! I am now 39 weeks and just want this baby out!

i think the position of baby contibutes to pain in labour, if baby is lying posterior ( with it;s back facing towards your back) it can cause irratic back labour pains. These apparantly become gradually worse if in real labour.
