Hi!
IF you were my patient, I would examine you for evidence of sciatica.  This is a common condition in pregnancy caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve.  It tends to cause back pain with movement. Pelvic pressure is common, especially if you have had a baby before (and my goodness, yours are twins!)  You can ask your doctor for a maternity support garment which could help with all of the symptoms.
As far as the discharge, it does not sound like your water has broken, but I would rule that out and check for any evidence of bacterial or other infection in the vagina.
Hope this helps!
Dr B
