Should I be concerned about menstrual cramps and lower back pain during pregnancy?

I am 34 weeks 3 days pregnant. I have been having terrible menstrual like cramping for 2 days now. I started getting lightheaded yesterday, but this comes and goes. I also have dull low back pain. Should I be concerned. I had an appointment 2 days ago and my Dr. said that my cervix is not thinning yet.

Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Menstrual like cramps are present in preterm labour.
It can be threatened preterm labour, in which cervix is not thinned and dilated.
I will suggest you to consult an OBGYN specialist to be treated as an inpatient, and proper treatment given.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health.
