Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms could indicate that your body is getting prepared for labor, and the increase in the abdominal cramps and back pain could indicate exaggerated Braxton Hick’s contractions. If worried, and if symptoms have been persistent or increasing in intensity, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and get started on treatment as appropriate (based on evaluation findings) for smooth continuation of pregnancy and/or childbirth. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest.
Take care.
