Im having really bad back cramps, sometimes wrapping around the front but not tightening my stomach. Are these contractions? Should I be timing them, they are sort of a wave but more constant. Anything to be worried about? Early labor is so confusing
Usually, they will still tighten your abdomen when it's a true contraction. Some women that have back labor, which is usually when the baby is posterior (so their spine is facing your spine and they're born face up instead of face down) only have back cramps though. I would probably time them to see if there's some type of pattern for about 30 minutes. If it's just a constant crampy feeling, then it might just be a regular back ache. I'd take a bath/shower as well and try to have your DH massage your back a bit to see if that helps.
Nah...even 3 times thru this I go...ummm...is this it?! LOL! Trust me. But, when it gets here, you will be like OHHHHH, that's it!! Your wanting labor so badly, and I don't blame ya...meeeee toooooooo I have finally progressed from 3 and 60% to 4 and 80%. Just Thursday I was 3, so I finally felt successful today lol!

everything from last night went away but I was still uncomfortable and didnt sleep much, so far nothing is happening today but I still feel closer even if it's just a little bit. Im just so ready to get this thing done.
