Unfortunately I cannot say for sure. However, with this pregnancy my braxton hicks have changed from the front to my back. I get tons of pressure that come and go like contractions. everything tightens up and so forth. 

I have always been told by my previous OB's that regardless of front/back labor they will still come on like contractions. You should be able to time them and so forth. IF you can time them and they are consistant and all you could be in labor. I don't think it would hurt to consult your doctor to be sure.

I had back labor with my 10 month old due to a dislocated tailbone. The easiest way I can think to explain how it felt to me was someone shoved a burning rod through my back muscles. During the contractions, it felt like that "rod" was being turned. It hurt like hell during the contractions, but the pain didn't go away completely after each one.

I would try timing the pains and see if they are consistent. If they have any pattern, put a call into your dr.

that could be more like a nerve thing. maybe baby is shifting onto a nerve when you move like that.

Could it be round ligament pains?

It felt like someone bent me over backwards and left me there to suffer. Everything that I felt was in my back and my pelvis

I'm not sure if it was back labor... but I had BH so bad I had to go into the OB dept on Sat. I was having contractions with shooting pains in my lower back that I could barely walk I had them for two days before I went in. it can be a sign your going into labor
