I am and they just started 2 days ago. My lower back also started KILLING me 2 days ago. I actually have had to go to bed with a cold pack to try and alleviate some of the pain. I have noticed that when my back really starts to get achy I will also get some abdominal cramping. Nothing severe, but its' there and I worry nonetheless. It's what we do right?

I think if you're not bleeding or spotting you are probably fine. Seems this stuff always starts AFTER your midwife appt doesn't it? That's how it works for me...I'm there and fine, I walk out and a new problem presents itself! My midwife told me that you get aches and pains and cramps a lot sooner or they're actually more pronounced in a second pregnancy. Like our bodies start preparing for birth a lot sooner. Makes sense cause I had none of this in my second trimester with my son.

Good luck and I hope our cramps stop soon!
