I am due the same day and no you aren't the only one dealing with cramping still. My lower back actually started hurting today as well which has me a little freaked out. I didn't have this experience this early in my first pregnancy, but I know each one is different. I am kind of wondering though since it is my second pregnancy that maybe everything is just stretching out more quickly since the muscles have already been stretched out before. Doctor told me that it is normal and to go to the ER if there is any spotting or bleeding. I am going to try and lie down and see if that helps the back out some.

I have been having cramps and lower back pain for almost a week now. It seems to be getting better today though. I havent had any bleeding so I am assuming its just normal stretching. This is my 6th child and I will say that the symptoms are different with each one and most of them are more pronounced the more children you have. As long as your not bleeding then you shouldnt worry about it - just rest if it gets bothersome.

Thanks for the responses, feel much better. This is my first so I'm a little paranoid and always worrying. Today I feel sooooo bloated and can't even zipper my pants..LOL.Could it be that I am already heading toward maternity clothes! Is it dangerous to wear tight fitting close so early on?
