So for the last 2 weeks i have been suffering from a really bad back and hip pain but at 16 weeks this seemed to be a little odd.
I have now been told that i could be carrying a 'back baby' which is often the cause. I have never heard of this before but apparently the baby can get comfy and lay down at the very bottom of your womb near your back and between the hips.
Unfortunately there isn't anything that the MW or hospital can do as its up to baby to move their butt forward and get comfy nearer the front. If it doesn't and it likes where it is i am likely to experience back and hip pain throughout the pregnancy and a very hard labor.
I am now worried about this as its my first baby and although i know labor is horrendous i quite hoped it would be a fairly quick process with minimal drug assistance!
Has anyone else had this experience and do you have any tips for making baby get a wiggle on?
