Welcome to ehealthforum.
The symptoms described by you could suggest chances of preterm labour. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your gynecologist/midwife and report any new symptoms immediately. Further evaluation done will reveal the current cervix status and wellbeing of the baby. Further management would be started based on your examination findings and investigation results (ultrasound scan, per-vaginal examination findings, NST test etc).
Take care.
