does back labor feel like kidney pain?

Postby mamadru10 » Wed Oct 17, 2012 1:22 pm

I feel like I have a horrid kidney infection on both sides in the back and was wondering if that's what this could be or if I need to go back to L&D... ctrx are only mildly painful but roughly 4-6 minutes apart and lasting around 30 seconds, on top of it I'm having som major hot flashes. Labor or an infection do you think?

Back labor for me was horrible stabbing pain that went across my entire lower back. It was awful. If you are having bad pain I would call your OB and see what they say.

I have an appointment today, ctrx and pain still here more than 12 hours later nothing has changed so I'm thinking probably just a kidney infection or something.

I have heard kidney or UTI infections are common in late pregnancy. I hope you get some answers!

All he told me was that the BH are progressive and doing what they are supposed to do. No protien or anything abnormal with the UA and no other kinds of infections either (per tests done @ L&D) so I'm guessing that it was probably just the longest most painful BH I have ever had.

When my real contractions started I swear it made me feel like I was having the WORST constipation/gas pains in the world and they were one on top of another once they really got going, IDK if it was my version of back labor or what but.... Glad you don't seem to have an infection and I hope your LO shows up soon ;)
