Something has been worrying me and its probably nothing, but has anyone had a back to back birth? On Monday, Dr said the baby had rotated and was now Back to my Back? I asked what she meant and she said that the babies head would come upright out instead of downwards. She also said I'd have more painful contractions and more back pain? But anyone with any advice or experiences with this??? I'am very frustrated also because been having contractions since wednesday morning.They were 1 every 20 mins but sometimes less then that lasting about 2 mins.Went into hosp that night and Dr did an internal said I was early stages of labour.Put me on the monitor and contractions showed up on machine. She gave me some panadeine forte for pain and to help me sleep cos she didn't want me coming back into hospital when in labour with no sleep. About 11.30 the contractions were so much more painful then any I had been getting.Took the tablets and slept well. Thursday had no contractions until late afternoon but they were more further apart then wednesdays????? Slept crap last night and was up at 4:30 this morning with contractions starting and have had 8 since 4:30 but no regular time interval, but more painful. I have had constant achey back and slight to mild cramping across lower adomen since early wednesday morning.!!! I have been told this back to back can cause longer labour or drawn out labour??? Someone please tell me this is wrong!!! If Im going to go into labour let me go, I don't want it to drag out with these pains for days!!!!!
