It sounds like contractions. You said they are about ten minutes apart? Pay attention to them and start timing them. Each time one starts, count, see how long they last. Also keep track of the time in between the pain. If it's happening every 2-5 minutes, you could definitely be in early labor. If it doesn't ease up after an hour, I would call L&D.

Yes mam, you could be in labor. A lot of mamas get all the pain in their back, hence the term "back labor".
In half an hour, they're still going.. call L&D- sex can kickstart things so you may have done just that, lol.

Contractions can be back pain

I drink plenty of water and just lay on your left side and see if they stop. Braxton hicks contractions will usually go away, real contractions won't.
