Quoting Rachelbabyxx:" Thank you.. Does everyone poo when they're giving birth? x"

I didnt with either of my babies - i did make a trip to the bathroom as i was in early labour (only have 5hr labours both times) so my tummy must have been empty.

Meh, they're use to it though, thats their job.

Quoting MunchkinWrangler:" Best way I can describe it is a lot of pressure and basically cramps that feel like your belly is tightening all the way around your back. ."

This! I knew it was labour because it felt like BH contractions, but this time instead of stopping at my hips it rolled all over my back and came together at my tailbone. I was having backlabour though.

I had back labour so I didn't know I was in labour for a few hours! The pain started in my left side first so I thought I had another kidney infection. Then it spread across my lower back. Absolute agony :( ill never forget it. It felt like my back was slowly breaking and I kept tensing up without realising it during each contraction. I got a small few stomach contractions and they weren't too bad in comparison, they felt like bad period cramps.

When I went into labor with my third, the first hour felt like braxton hicks contractions (just a slight tightening of your whole belly) and a little bit of back pain. I didn't know I was in labor until my belly took over my entire body! You will know when that happens. It just feels like your belly tightens up in sort of a wave and you can't concentrate on anything else.
