These are non specific symptoms. In true labor you ll get pain in low back and abdomen radiating towards thighs. It ll be associated with show. The pain increases in intensity during contractions which comes at regular intervals and your abdomen becomes hard. If you experience these symptom you should immediately rush to hospital. Take care
