Yes sounds like things are kicking off! How far are you? Is this your first baby?

That sounds like the contractions I had with my b2b labour. I found it painful to do anything apart from stand up!

Hope your baby has arrived or is close to arriving!

I was just about to post exactly the same thing-sounds like my back to back labour. Very stop/start compared to my other labours and an odd sort of pain. Not in my stomach at all, like hou expect contractions, all in my lower back and hips. I couldn't stand still, just had to pace and sway constantly. He turned at the last moment by the way, and the birth was fine, just took a while to get to that point. Hope its going well x

DS1 was back to back and all the pain from the contractions was in my back until I was almost at the pushing stage. Took me a while to realize it was labour rather than some weird kind of backache. Standing up and keeping as active as possible helped.

Good luck.
