Thanks for writing to us.
You should immediately report to the hospital because the symptoms you have mentioned above are suggestive of that you are in labor.
So please consult a gynaecologist and she will examine you and rule out whether you are in true labour or not. If these are false labor pain then she will give you some injection to relief pain.
Good luck.

Thanks for writing in.
There is no way you can diagnose the onset of labour without going to a doctor or seeking expert help. You should seek medical help immediately.
Constipation may have caused these symptoms. Once the labour is ruled out you may get relief by increasing oral hydration, high fiber diet, Ispaghol husk etc.
Wish you best of luck.
Take care.

This irregular contraction might be due to constipation, but this might be uterine contraction as well.
Consult your Obst. and get examined.
If this due to constipation, she will give some medicine for constipation or even mild enema if she feels proper.
Take rest.
Ok and take care.
