First off don't freak. Secondly they start in the front and then move to the back. It feels like a horrible backache. It will last for 30 to 45 seconds then go away and you will have a lingering pain in your back until the next one but its nothing you cant handle, it kind of feels like you slept wrong. Now its not back contractions as they happen in the front its back labor and the contractions cause it. If you can time it out and it is coming and going then get a stop watch and start timing. Once they get 5 minutes apart then you can call the hospital or your doctor.
