38 weeks cramping and back pain

I'm 38 weeks and 3 days. I got checked on Monday and had no dilation and my cervix is hard and high. I don't think I've had any contractions, even Braxton hicks. If I have I definitely didn't know it. I've had some cramping and pressure the last few weeks but the past couple days I've been getting menstraul like cramping and radiating pain to my lower back. But the cramping seems to be more prominent on my lower right at the top of my pubic area. It doesn't last all night or day. Sometimes a few minutes sometimes longer but rarely lingers. What is happening??

I have the same and I am 39 and 3. I had an appt today and I am 2cm dilated and 60% effaced. I think its early signs of labor. I hope anyway!!
