Mine starts out like really bad menstral cramps & spreads towards the front of my stomach... the doctors have stopped them so I'm not sure how bad it gets after that!! My mom had it and said its awful...
I could be wrong, but I have heard that if you have back cramps with your period, you'll have back labor... not sure how true that is?!
K. I'm having back pain, but it's not horrific. It's probably from my stupid couch.
TMI - I had to strain and push earlier when pooping (a major no-no for me), so I wasn't sure if I triggered anything.
Desi632:I'm curious. Thouse of you who had back labor, did or do you experience back pain or crapming with your regular periods? The reason I ask is, my mom had Dysmenorrhea and had back labor with both me and my brother. I also had Dysmenorrhea in my teens and experienced extreamly painful back pain and cramps but never really had the lower abdominal cramping most women get. Just curious if there is any possible connection between the type of cramping one has normally and the likelyhood of having back labor.
I do/did not have back cramps with my periods. Also my second child came out like he was supposed to and I did not have back labor that time.
I never experienced back pain with any of my period cramps. My back labor was so intense and had a burning sensation every time I had contractions. It was his head pounding against my lower spine! If you have your partner push with both hands (one hand on each side of the spine) and push down and together it helps take some of the pain away!
