37 Weeks, Bad Cramps!!!???

Last night I had really bad cramps, like I haven't had before. They lasted for less than 5 minutes and it only happened twice through the night. My lower back was hurting at that time too.
My back kinda hurts still and I feel heavy at times, and I have felt a lil cramps here and there today but nothing like last night, haven't seen any other signs.
Any idea what that could be?
This is my first pregnancy and haven't had or felt yet anyways until now my body "preparing" for birth.
Please let me know!

It could have been Braxton Hicks contractions - these can get quite painful toward the end of pregnancy.  Did your stomach tighten up? Any possibility that you were dehydrated?

It could be braxton hicks. If the cramps get worse and happen more often i would book in with your doc just to make sure everything is ok.
                     good luck.
