  • Sounds more like a pinched nerve or Siatica to me.

  • do you know how your baby is positioned? s/he may be putting pressure on your lower spine area. My first was positioned head down, but face down also and I had really bad back labor and many sharp feeling contractions w/ braxton-hicks. try doing some cat/cow yoga positions. you can youtube them if you're not sure what they are. they supposedly help reposition the baby, and if nothing it'll at least take pressure off your back for a while.
