When in doubt go in. It'll ease your mind and if something is going on you did the right thing. ((hugs))

The back pain and pressure could be contractions. I had tons of those in labor with my son.
You're full term. It's going to happen any day now anyway, if you're concerned go in! That's what they are there for!

I keep having pains like that too. Especially right now because i did too much this morning. When I am undecided, I call them ahead and ask their recommendation. Last Friday I was having them for 8 hours and the nurses told me to go in, I did and the way I was laying, they stopped almost completely. I felt like a doof but they reassured me not to worry because I may feel the same way again and it will be the real deal and how would I feel if I didn't go in and something was going on? They were really cool. I'd call at least to ease you rmind!
I went in they gave me fluids and sent me home. They said it could be back labor but I'm only 1-2 cm so they couldn't keep me. They said try to get a sooner appointment with my Dr if i want which i need to anyways cause i can't make it Wednesday. He is weighing in at 8lbs 3oz now but my Dr won't induce for another 3 weeks so they say he should be close to 10lbs
Ps. Dont feel stupid. I havent been sleeping well since being in L&D on Thursday. I keep waking up, freaking out that I dont feel wee dude moving, and then layong there till I do. This morning I was really tempted to go in and see if they could hook me up just to hear that his heart rate was ok. I def feel like im not as big as I was, and that I feel more of him when I feel my belly than i should be. Im just scared that his fluid levels are going to drop even more, and that hes going to start having more heart rate drops also, my contractions are def still going, and it even got to the point whede I got sick and had to run for the bathroom.
