Okay so every labor is different... And DD's was a TON of back labor and LOW back pain because she was posterior. So far this baby has been presenting anterior (woot!) so the off and on contractions I have had have been different... All of my contractions with DD were low, below my belly button and in my back.
This started the other night... It feels like a BH... Everything tightens up, my belly gets hard to where you can see the outline of baby bottom and back, lol... But it's in my back too... My entire back, from the top of my belly/uterus area all the way down. It's starting up near the top of my uterus (like a BH) and it's a gentle (thought a bit uncomfortable) downward release.
Is this a non-back labor contraction? Is this just a BH? It started late Monday night... I had a lot of 'full moon' action, alot of cramping, hip and pelvic discomfort and alot of this BH but in my back too stuff... It's been happening since then, though a lot less frequent.
I'm not holding my breath... But wondering if maybe this is early labor... My midwife lives an hour and 20 min away so I don't want to be in the 'umm... I'm not sure' mode if it suddenly picks up but feels the same and have her miss the birth... We're prepared to catch baby ourselves but it's not the way we necessarily WANT to do it lol.
This is my 3rd baby but only my 2nd natural labor... DS was induced at 37 weeks... DD was a hit hard, hit fast labor because of her position... So this gentle tugging/hugging/squishing type feeling that takes my breath a bit is new to me...
Your thoughts, oh wise ladies??
