Onset of labor?

I'm 38w 4d and started getting really bad stomach pains. My back is also aching pretty badly. At our last appointment I was 2cm and 50% effaced. The stomach pains aren't going away but aren't getting stronger either. Could this be a sign of early labor?

It's not really early labor since full tern is from 38-42 weeks.
It could be labor though. Time the contractions and lie down as well. If they go away when you lie down then you aren't in labor.
You can always ring the hospital and talk to them though, they will advise if you should go in or not, not a bunch of strangers on the internet. The hospital are the ones that have all of your notes with them.
