If the pain is starting in the lower abdomen and radiating to be the back then it could be due to false pain or fetal movements.Constipation may also cause a discomfort.
I suggest that you see your OB and get medication/tocolytics for the pain and a mild laxative.Drink plenty of water and increase fibre in your diet.
