I'm having 'after sex contractions' this is my first pregnancy and I feel period like pains and some lower back pain. Although these are not true labor contractions, do they feel the same to true labor contractions? I want to know what to expect. I'm having a natural water birth!

No, not really. Those are just cramps. True contractions come with a LOT of pressure.

It is pretty normal to have some cramping or bh after. I would worry of they start to intensify.

I hope your water birth goes well! I had one with my 3rd & my best (by far!) labor experience out of the 3!
