Welcome to ehealthforum,
Lower abdominal pains & pressure could be due to fetal presenting part pressing down on pelvic structures, frequent or increased vaginal discharge is common in pregnancy. Back pain could be due to stretch effect on uterosacral ligaments (that support the uterus) as the uterus stretches due to growing baby inside. If symptoms are increasing in intensity, visit your gynecologist/obstetrician for a thorough examination to rule out serious issues and premature labor. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
Take care.
