YANMP (perinatologist) and I will call them but first can someone describe what back labor feels like?

I'm 32 weeks and 2 days. At 23wks I had a sherodkar rescue cerclage placed because my cervix had shortened to 1cm. Since then I've been having sporadic contractions, and preterm labor had to be stopped with procardia and terbutaline. Needless to say ive been in and out of labor and delivery countless times and I'm sure they are sick of me.
Yesterday evening I started having sharp and I mean sharp pain in my lower back which hasnt let up. I cannot put any weight on my legs because the pain is excruciating. Thing is though I've not had any contractions or bloody show or anything just thing pain that is making me almost suicidal. I hesitate to go in though because I don't want to cry wolf. Also I have a 1 year old and 3 year old that need taking care of and my husband will be livid if I pull him out of work for a false alarm.
So, ladies, doctors, veterinarians, Dr House, Doogie Howser, whomever... Ya think it's labor?
