26 weeks pregnant, intense abdominal pain, cramps, back pain. Cause of cramps?

Hi, I am 26 weeks pregnant, I have fairly intense lower abdominal pain, cramps that come and go. I also have pain in my lower back, only on the left hand side. I have been to see the hospital today, for a routine check up & had myself checked out. I have been told that the back pain is due to the weight of the uterus on the nerve,
And the cramps were due to a viginal infection, while the back pain makes sense, the cramps doesn't. They come and go and are fairly intense....any suggestions.

Hi and welcome.
First, if there is a vaginal infection it must be treated.SOmetimes it can lead to complications. Cramps are something usual in such late pregnancies and it shouldnt woory you. Uterus presses not only nerves, but colon and stomach too. So just be relaxed ,eat easier food , drink enough fluids. ALso do frequent US check ups of baby as well as abdomen . I am sure that this is nothing serious. Wish you good health.
