Where do you get contractions?

Between contractions, the uterus relaxes and the abdomen becomes soft. The way a contraction feels is different for each woman, and may feel different from one pregnancy to the next. But labor contractions usually cause discomfort or a dull ache in your back and lower abdomen, along with pressure in the pelvis.

Can you have Braxton Hicks contractions in your back?

Note that Braxton Hicks contractions are different from the contractions you'll feel in labor: They're irregular and will subside after a time. They won't increase in strength or frequency. You'll feel pain in your lower abdomen, not your lower back.
