Signs labor is near?

I am 37 weeks, I was leaking a lot of fluid this morning the doctor checked and said it is not amniotic fluid but I am 1cm dilated and 50% effaced. I am now having really bad back pain, it’s in the middle of my back and occasionally wraps around to my upper abdomen. Could this be contractions cause by my cervical exam? Can contractions be felt in upper back?


I had back labor too. Did the same thing! Good luck

Yes go back and be seen immidiately.


Both times I was pregnant I had back contractions only.
