Is it your first? It may well be the streching of your muscles and ribcage.  As you said it hurts your back as well, it my be the ribcage opening up as well.  I had a large baby and I accually got stress fractures in my ribs from the pregnancy and feeding.  The little bone at the end of my sternum was pushed out at right angles to my chest and has never returned to normal. It felt like you are describing.  Nothing anyone can do at this stage.  Is your AFI normal (amniotic fluid levels)? Expecting a big baby? No gestational diabetes? Might want to check these things at your next visit.  If nothing else, I can sympathize, and hope the remainder of your preg goes quick!

If you are 32 weeks pregnant, and describing "severe" abdominal pain, you need to immediately call your doctor.

Minor aches and pains can be expected during pregnancy, but no pain should ever be described as severe.  If it is, it needs to be evaluated right away.
