and mamanoish, my son wasn't posterior, but he had a nuchal hand, and I had solid back labor the entire time. I also don't have the best back, so, not sure the exact cause.
this one was totally posterior at the 35th week, too. what is that all about, babies?

I vote for easy peasy for you, blueheron! i'll have some of that for myself, too, please.

So far I've had alot of pre-labor stuff going on (after nothing with my first child whose labor only presented itself after the water breaking)... and none of it is back or hip. Contractions are clearly belly, lower abdomen and cervix... and I think that bodes really well for us!
yay for trusting our babes and feeling at peace. i am so glad to have gotten to that place the past few weeks, too. with my last babe who was born posterior, it was definetely odd that i didn't have back labor.
