i used to get cramps all the time in the late part of my pregnancy. theres no reason for them to check you that early. it can introduce bacteria and stuff.

Take it slow for the rest of the day. Get lots of rest and if you start cramping again tomorrow and/or more tonight I would get checked out b/c of Pre-term Labor.

Don't be worried at all! I had period like cramps since day one of my pregnancy. But I heard that if you develop them at the end it may mean your cervix are starting to thin out / dilate so I'm sure that's all it is :)

Like I said could be preterm labor. Just keep an ear open for more contractions.

Its normal...I get the same thing when I need to drink water, or over due it with walking and cleaning. Whenever that happens just drink some water and lay down for a few min if they don't go away after that then call your doctor :)
