    Most of my pains were in my lower back, so I think that's normal and not necessarily the baby back to back.

    I don't really know for sure but I woke up last night with back pain. It felt like period cramps.

    Doesn't mean the babys back to back it's more the pains you experience and where they are. I had back labour with my son In the first part of it, felt like the kidney pains you get when your on a period for me, strangely no pains on my tummy at all so wasn't sure if I was in labour or not. Midwife said I was 4 cm so definatly the real deal. All changed when I had my waters broke, the tummy contractions were so intense... Epidural was howled for on the following contractions!!

    I had a back labour with my son and he wasn't back to back, his head was in the wrong position though so that could have caused it. x x x

    My mum said she only ever had back labour with all 4 children and none of us were back to back. I think its less common but does happen x
