one of my co-workers just told me "you're probably having back labor"...but i'm not so sure. my back is KILLING me. like someone is just punching my lower back over and over again...HOWEVER, i'm not having any regular contractions - just the normal bh i've been having for months. and the pain in my back isn't coming and going it's just constant. am i crazy to think this isn't back labor or should i call my dr? i feel silly posting here and asking...but don't wan to bother my dr again. TIA.

I would also guess back labor :) Never know though... pregnancy is full of confusing pains. If it really is killing you, I'd call the OB and hope to get checked out! Sending some labor vibes your way...

you're so close! Good luck! I had a lot of the constant back pain/cramping the days leading up to labor.

I had back labor with my first two babies ... but it is still (in my experience) pain with a pattern (contractions) as opposed to a solid constant pain.
