On occations after long days at work, I would occationally come home and on my long drive home my back would HURT. It was a strange pain and nothing I could do would releive it (not that there is a lot one can do when driving anyway). The pain WASN'T in my lower back so I never thought it could be like a back labor or contractions in my back. It was in my mid-upper back, where the top of my uterus would be. (I was at 24-25 weeks by this time). About a year after I had my son, I heard that this could be back labor. I was really surprised. He was my fourth, I knew everything at that point, right?? lol
So, my question is, is that true? Can you have back labor in your mid-upper back?!
the pain I felt when I had back labor was lower back, but that depends on where you define lower back. I know the pain in my back was as high as my navel, so if you call that mid-back, then I had mid-back pain with back labor.

Mine was lower back. I had it during active labor because he was sunny side up, so it felt like it was right where my spine and pelvis meet up in the back. So I want to say no, but really, everyone is different. Could it have been a pinched nerve type of thing you were experiencing?
Where I was experiencing it was above the navel just below or around the shoulder blades. So I guess it was more middle back... upper middle back...
This is just interesting to hear where those of you who have had it, did indeed have it. Now I really wonder if that is what I was having. Whatever it was, it REALLY REALLY hurt and there was nothing I could do to relieve it (esp since I was usually driving when I noticed it).
