Hmm...sounds like it could be back labor. I've never experienced it, but have friends who have and the main problem with it (other than being so painful) is that usually women just think it's back pain and don't actually realize they're in labor. You might just want to call your OB and see what he or she thinks. Good luck! If it isn't back labor, I hope it goes away quickly for you so that you can get some relief.

Thanks all it has gotten much better today. Im wondering if the baby was maybe on the move last night .... I ended up going on a mile walk with my dh after heating packed it for quite a while and the seemed to make things much more bearable today.

Glad to hear you're feeling better! I agree with walking making back pain feel better. I've dealt with some pretty severe sciatic pain during this and my first pregnancy and even though it is SOOOOO painful at first, I've found that the more mobile I am, the better it seems to get.
