I could be wrong, but it sounds to me like your little one has settled into a position on one of your nerves :\

Call your doctor. Labor feels different for everyone. Abdominal pain and back pain can be labor but could be false labor. If it persists, I would call a doctor and ask.

I had my first baby 3months ago. I had about the same thing for a coulpe weeks before having my baby. I think it is a sign that the time is coming closer. For me the real labour felt like a sever stomach ache that would hit and let up. It would come at less then 5 min. apart. I found that soaking in water as hot as you can stand it makes the pain bearable. And the more relaxed you are the less it hurts. My labour was 9hrs. and I was able to stay totally relaxed and it didn't feel as bad at I though it would. And I even had a complication. My baby got stuck. But I had great midwifes. We got the baby unstuck. And I had her naturally.
