At 35 weeks and 6 days pregnant I have a painful pressure. What complications may occur if my baby were born between 36-37 weeks instead of full term?

In brief: Call your OB now!!!
You may be in early labor that can be stopped if dealt with quickly.
You are looking at a 50% chance your child will end up in a nicu nursery on oxygen or a ventilator & have all the complications of ICU care.

In brief: Probably will be OK
Most babies born between 36-37 weeks will be fine.
A small percentage of babies can have problems with breathing room air, maintain their body temperature, remembering to swallow when they suck. They're at greater risk for jaundice which can require special lights to resolve. Just because you're having pressure doesn't mean you'll deliver early. Make sure to eat, drink lots of water and rest.
