if you had back labor...

...did you have a back ache afterwards?

I had back labor with DD - she was head down but facing sideways until just before delivery.  It has been a week, and my back feels like i've been in a car wreck. Some of it is just being tired, and some is probably due to the awkward nursing positions i had to use with the bili blanket on her.  But I'm thinking a visit to the chiropractor is in my future.

Re: if you had back labor...

  • Yes.  I actually had spasms in my back for maybe two weeks.

  • I didn't really. But a combo of nursing, labor, carrying baby and everything else could definitely add to it.

  • Yes!  I had MAJOR back labor with C, as he was sunny side up.  My back hurt for a few weeks.  I don't remember exactly when it stopped.  PLUS, I had inside bruising from the epidural (the guy was a douche and stuck me multiple times because he "couldn't get it right" and then I could still feel everything on the right front and left back!!!)

  • Declan came out sunny side up and I didn't have any backache out of the normal realigning that happens.  Sorry yours hurts, hopefully you get relief soon!

  • Yes!  weeks and weeks and weeks.  I have had back issues to begin with though.

    Same here.

  • I don't remember. I can only remember the blinding pain of really fast back labor.

    Plus I can't separate out what later pain was from the c/s and what was from the back labor.

  • No.  I had back labor with both babies (with DD1 because she was posterior, and with DD2 just because my body apparently likes to labor in my back).  No pain afterwards.

  • I practically lived at my chiropractor's office before and after the delivery. Took about 5 months to really settle out.

  • Definitely go to the chiro. Always helps me!
    I did have back labor but I ended up with a C/S so I dont know what pain after labor was from the actual labor/pushing or the C/S.
