Am I doing to much? Can I send myself into labor? Please read.

I'm 30W. I have been doing ALOT of cleaning cause me and my husband are buying this house we got a great deal on. Yay us! Well we are trying to move in before this baby comes, but the house did need a DEEP cleaning. Yesterday and today that is all I have been doing Is cleaning getting it ready but I have been having braxton hicks and extreme lower back and hip pain! The braxton hicks have been maybe 1 an hour if that... Sometimes 2 an hour but they are so strong/ intense they hurt!!! My stomach will tighten up and it feels like a knife is going across my belly.
I've been sitting down cause it seems every time I get up to move my lower back and hips hurt. Did I over do it? If I do to much can I go into labor? I've called my Dr but no answer.. I'm just a Lil curious cause I'm 30W and I dont have long to go, I dont wanna send myself in labor by doing to much but I really would like to be moved in, in the next month? :/

Doubtful.  baby is snug as a bug.  We are supposed to be active during pregnancy and pregnancy isn't so fragile we can't work hard around the house!  However, you also have to listen to your body.  If you have knife like pains, take it easy for a bit!  good luck and happy moving!!
