From the mentioned facts, the patient seems to be in labour. Here are the basic diagnostic procedures and assessments that should be done based on these symptoms: 1. **Obstetrical History** - This has already been established, but it is important to double-check the details again, especially about past deliveries, pregnancies, and any complications that occurred. 2. **Presenting Symptoms Assessment** - Evaluate the patient's pain, contractions, and backache. The frequency, duration, and intensity of contractions should be documented. 3. **Physical Examination** - This should include an examination of all systems, not just the reproductive system, but primary focus should be given on the reproductive system. It includes checking the dilation and effacement of the cervix, position and station of the baby. As per the provided details, the patient is already in active labour. 4. **Lab Tests** - Routine blood tests including CBC, blood type, Rh factor should be ordered to check for any abnormalities which could affect the delivery or indicate potential concerns for mother's health. 5. **Cardiotocographic Monitoring (CTG)** - CTG monitoring should be advised to monitor the baby's heart rate and the mother's contractions. This will help to detect any fetal distress early. 6. **Ultrasound** - An ultrasound can give a clear picture of the baby's position, the location of the placenta, amniotic fluid levels and other crucial details. 7. **Vital Signs Monitoring** - Regular monitoring of BP, pulse rate, temperature. If there are any complications or risks found, other diagnostic procedures may be needed. It is absolutely vital that the patient is closely monitored for progression of labour and to look for any signs of distress both in the mother and baby. As she has reported miscarriage in the previous pregnancy, special care should be taken to avoid any complication in the current pregnancy. Notify the gynecologist immediately if any abnormal signs or symptoms appear. As in any healthcare procedures, make sure the patient's consent is obtained before carrying out any tests or procedures.
