lower back pain at 37 weeks?

I've been having a pretty easy going pregnancy. I'm 37 and half weeks along and today all of a sudden I am having tons of low low back pain and abdomen pressure. Like constantly...it feels like cramps but its not contractions because its not intermittent and it doesn't tighten up...just a constant cramping feeling in my back and abdomen.

Anyone have this? Think baby's coming soon? Maybe she's just getting lower in my pelvis or something?

_aybe. I had second riding low all preg & lots more back pain. I think maybe getting ready to come out. Some people I know have contractions a while before baby that aren't in an interval. Mine started as cramps this time. First baby I had really bad back pain like it sounds you have & it was back labor. It sucked.....

I am 35 weeks and i was feeling the same, the doctor said it is completly normal. However, if you feel contractions for 40 mins non stop, you should got to your maternity.

Yeah, maybe she's dropped? I remember a nagging backache around 36 weeks when DS dropped.
