You are carrying 38 wk plus pregnancy and presents with true labor pain. Cervix is also dilated 2 cm with 70% effaced. So you are near about to deliver your baby.
In this time,back pain,lower abdominal pain are quite common and originating from uterine contraction.
It is emergency situation.So contact with your doctor/local hospital to admit immediately for safe delivery of the baby.
Wish you for successful mother.
