With dd, I was told that since she was posterior I would feel a lot of pain in my back but instead I felt it in my sides. My back and front felt fine, but my sides hurt the way they do when there is a kidney infection. I tested negative for that, though.
I spent most of my time in bed but did try side-lying and squatting, which didn't do much for the pain. The nurses said they had never heard of it. (That's not what anyone wants to hear!)
Has anyone heard of this? Was it because she was posterior, or something else? Is there any way to alleviate it in case it happens again?
