Just curious. This is new to me. My last preg my ctx started in my back and wrapped to my front and then were gone. I also had the pressure in my bottom. I am having a bit of pressure in my bottom (babies position or ctx?) and I seem to be having mild ctx in my back but they are not wrapping around to the front. Any thoughts on this?
if you suspect posterior or that baby is hitting the back of your pelvis, you can try a supported hands and knees position (tons of pillows or whatever to drape your front over, so there is no pressure on your belly and no work for your leg and arm muscles). I labored like that for a long while w/ my first when I was having "back labor" and it felt good. Wish I'd done it sooner- he was all bruised up across his forehead poor thing.
With ds1 I had back labour and being in the tub on hands and knees helped with counterpressure from doula or dh. With ds2 I also had back labour but wanted to lie on my side in bed with counterpressure from dh.
