39 weeks pregnant, 4 cm dilation, few contractions with back pain, sweating badly. Labor ?

Hello I m currently 39 weeks pregnant and I m 4 cm dialated 100% effaced still few contractions here & there not constant. I ve been sweating really bad and have lost my plug a few days ago and having really bad back pain just wondering if the end is near because I don t know how much more I can stand and this last week seems so far away. Do you think that labor will start any time soon?

according to your findings you are in active labor,
as the cervix is already 4 cm dilated with full effacement, there is chance for quick progression and also risk of rupture of membranes, so go to hospital and consult your doctor immediately,
it is not like every woman will delivery only after 40 complete weeks, sometimes labor pains can come early also,
so go to hospital but take proper care while moving there, prefer ambulance if possible.
take care.
