The American Pregnancy Association says the following:

"It is important to contact your doctor if you experience any of the following symptoms after your cerclage is placed:
    * Contractions or cramping
    * Lower abdominal or back pain that comes and goes like labor pain
    * Vaginal bleeding
    * A fever over 100 F or 37.8 C, or chills
    * Nausea and vomiting
    * Foul-smelling vaginal discharge
    * Your water breaking or leaking"

Despite the word "cramping" in the list, I think they are talking about more severe cramping that would indicate contractions, rather than the way you described it.  I would take my doctor's advice and not be worried.
