Your symptoms suggest that you are into pre-labor. The pains suggest that the baby could have descended further. You should contact your obstetrician and get admitted for observation in an institute with good pre-term baby care facilities. Meanwhile, take rest in left lateral position, observe movements of the baby and watch out for any bleeding, spotting or leak of the membranes. Take plenty of fluids and avoid solid diet. Hope your query is answered. Wish you safe motherhood.
