They may be braxton hicks. Drink plenty of water and rest, and that usually will alleviate them. You can have contractions without progressing into labor, which is one of the less exciting things about late pregnancy. Considering your back pain, your body may be gearing up for real labor in the next few days, so hopefully you will make some progress soon!

Everyone is different when it comes to Braxton hicks. Mine sometimes hurt. I was told that was normal for some people. They just don't have a pattern to them and they don't intensify and eventually stop.

I get alot of regular contractions at night, that seem to be around 5 mins apart but my rule is, that if I lay down and I can fall alseep then it must be ok.

2 nights ago I was ack in hospital. Contractions were 3-4 mins apart. I thought for sure baby was coming early, but it ended ÿou being false labour. They called in the obgyn and when they did an exam my cervix was closed. I am kinda relieved cause it is still too early, I am only 35 weeks. But, I am so ready for him to be here!
