Difficult to tell: Without physical exam, but it sounds like it could be facet arthopathy/arthritis. This can often be felt in the back on one side often with radiation around to the side of the flank or feel like a sharp stabbing pain from the back forward. You also have had a c-section, which could lead to different fascial strains or muscular issues that could produce this. I would recommend a good physical exam.

Possible SI spasm: The area you're describing could include different structures in the lower back including the blowback itself, the sacroiliac joint, the iliopsoas muscle, and sacrum. It could also involve organs underneath the musculoskeletal structure like the kidneys, so the best thing is to see your doctor, so s/he can do a thorough exam, and see if it's musculoskeletal in origin.
