Can you feel braxton hicks contractions in your back?

I'm 33 weeks 4 days pregnant.

I've only felt this twice today. Once at 5 am this morning when I got up to pee and once about 2 hours ago while I was vacuuming.

I haven't had them any more today but when I do they are very intense pressure in my lower back that feels like my lower back is going to cave in. It only last for about 30 seconds and then it's gone.

I've been having a lots of sharp cramps in my vagina but I have those often.

I'm just wondering if what I felt was probably braxton hicks or possibly something else. Anyone have any insight?
