The past few nights I have had cramping in my abdomen that spreads to my back.

I would call the Drs office and ask. Contractions feel different for everyone. With my second they felt like menstral cramps for a few weeks unti lthey were full blown making progress contractions.

I've been having minor cramps that go from my back forward, but they did say small cramps are normal at this stage.

I would definitely call your dr!!! Especially since you have a history of preterm labor.

Back pain is a big PTL sign as I am sure you know. Big hugs and I hope you called the dr.

Thanks guys! I called and spoke to an after hours nurse, so I have to follow up with my dr tomorrow. But the nurse said that as long as the cramping goes away and doesn't persist longer than an hour I'm usually going to be ok.

Did you ever hear back from your Dr.? I have been experiencing occasional weird cramps and dull aches lately, but I was under the impression that this is normal. This is my first baby so idk what to expect. Hope everything went ok with Dr.!

So sorry I didn't come back and update! My doc said it could just be from me doing too much and from my uterus stretching.

That's good! It's great the the cramping has let up.
I'm so bad at remembering to drink water. The only time I remember is when I wake up with a dry mouth in the middle of the night. I keep a big bottle near my bed so I can drink. I need to start keeping the big bottle near me all the time!

That's the only time I remember too! I have to be super thirsty!!! But I'm working on it, that and the constipation makes me drink water...I'm loving my orange juice though! :)
