Pre-labor at 30 Weeks?

I'm 30 weeks pregnant with a low lying placenta. I've had one previous birth at 35 weeks.

I've been having a lot of backache, low dull constant back pain. The baby is head down and my cervix is soft. I have a lot of pelvic pressure. It's really painful even to walk -- feels like I can barely close my legs and as if she's goin to just pop out.
