back labor?

I will be 38 weeks tomorrow and have been having lower back pain for the last couple hours. I also have sciatic so I can't tell if it's just that or back labor starting. I had sex this morning and have been feeling kind of crampy also. What exactly does back labor feel like?

I have three kids. This is my fourth. All my pregnancy has been back labor. They sit on your tail bone. Hot showers back rubs really didn't help me. Babies stayed there up until birth. It ***** because the pain wouldn't go away until I delivered. But it was a lot of lower back pain for me. This one is going to be the same way back labor.

I had back labor with my first and it was just a constant ache in my lower back that never went away and i had cramping with it. The back pain progressively got worst
