My experience with early labor? I’m not really sure what early labor is like.

I lost my mucus plug around 38 weeks. I didn’t have any noticeable BH contractions or any other signs, then at 39 weeks my water broke and I delivered DD 6 hours later.

Best of luck to you for the rest of your labor and delivery!

Contractions in your back sound like a good sign.


I am due on Saturday.


I have only had uncomfortable BH contractions – lost my MP on Friday and Saturday after having a sweep on Friday.  Dilated to a 2, 75% effaced, -2 station.


I havent noticed anything else really.  There are some girls in the July group who have lost their plug over the past couple weeks and not had any other signs of labor since!  Some girls have had uncomfortable contractions for a long time too.  I wish it were more straight forward!


Good luck and I hope you have a good birth experience!

With  my first I was in early labor for 17 hours & then was augmented (I should’ve gone home & waited for real labor to start).

I was in early (prodromal) labor for a looooooong time with my second. 6 nights of “false” labor & then 37 hours of consitent contractions to get to 4 cm.

For the back pain you’re having I would highly suggest doing LOTS of hands & knees to help baby get into a good anterior position. (many times posterior positioning can be the cause of back labor). The use of a rebozo can also be beneficial for progressing labor & positioning baby.
