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.

Well they turned into contractions, they were regular for a little while then they went away now they are back. Im guessing it's not delivery day yet. Man this is confusing.

It's just your body getting ready, it's a good sign.

Good Luck.

This is my second and I have no clue what to look for still..lol I figure when im doubled over in pain its time to start making phone calls..lol

I was induced with my daughter and that was 4.5 years ago so I forget what it is. Last night I thought it might be it because I was getting vajaja pains.

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.
