Re: What does back labor feel like? Seriously.

Also if you are in labor, the pain is so intense in your back, you don't notice the tightening in the belly. If you check your belly during the back pains and it's tight during the peak of the pains, you might be having back labor.

That is also true for me. I would feel the contractions/tightening IN my lower back. It would sometimes alternate between my tummy and back. As labor progressed... it was totally unbearable! I will NEVER have an unmedicated back labor again. My baby was huge though, stuck, and she was sunny side up. She came out face first! VERY painful!
