I also had this for 4 nights and my baby too was back to back. It was totally missed though. I would go to bed with period pains that would keep waking me up all night and then it'd go by morning. On my due date I had a sweep and asked the doc about baby's position - he said he couldn't tell but if it was back to back it'd turn in labour. Well within 6 hrs I was in full blown labour and only had pain in my back the whole way through which was actually absolutely hideous. I ended up having an emergency section too. If possible push to check baby's position as back labour was incredibly difficult :-( I hope things start for you very soon x
This sounds like my early labour with dd. She was also back to back. Pain every night just bad enough to stop me from sleeping then it stopped in the morning. In my case it only lasted for two nights then on the third night I went into full blown labour. Good luck!
No, my first. My second was the 'right' way around and my labour was much better in lots of ways - quicker and less stressful, but I don't honestly think that there was much difference in how painful the contractions were.
How are you doing, OP? I'm 39 weeks and having exactly the same thing - period pain every night that then vanishes. It feels nothing like my back to back baby pains with DS, which were all in my back, if that's any reassurance. But everyone's different!
I had this for several nights with dd. I'd start getting bad, regular BH and back ache. It would keep me up all sodding night then tail off in the morning. However when I did go into labour it was 5 hours and a straight forward birth with no tears. Mw said that a lot of the work had been done. Interestingly I went into labour properly the day my sister became fully available to look after my son-it was like I could "let myself" if that makes any sense. Dd was also back to back but "turned" during labour. When she turned everything became much easier despite being further along in labour.
Glad to hear it helped Nicky. Mine has been much less the last few night so maybe it was dehydration. I've been wondering about feeling able to labour with toddler - maybe once my mum arrives I can relax!
