Can one have contractions without any pain...I'm having htem quite often now, hvnt started timing them yet but roughly they r coming 10 mins apart....I also hve lower back pain that comes and goes...sometimes it stays for a while too....does tis mean I'm close to labor??

I think it's possible. I managed to dilate to a 5 without a lot of pain. An occasional twinge or two, but not pain per se.
