26 hours

So I have been having menstrual like cramps in my back and lower stomach for 26 hours now... ever since yesterday morning at 8. It's almost 10 am the next day. I see my dr at 3 today, but what is up with this constant cramping?! Is this a normal part of pregnancy?  35 weeks & 5 days btw

Sounds like contractions/back labor, but the best thing you can do it's talk to your doctor. Time them and see how far apart the cramps are. 5 minutes apart and regular means you should go to the hospital to be checked and monitored

That's the part I am confused about. They come and go every couple of mins, but it hasn't stopped at all for a day. like it always comes back doesn't get any worse. It's not intense but it is very uncomfortable. Feels like I have been on my period for a couple days.

While for most women, contractions start and you 'know' but there are some that do get this back labor.  I think it is worthy of phone call to your doctor.  I do know someone that back pain that was more uncomfortable than like the driving pains of labor contractions which are painful was the only sign that she was in labor.  So, call your doctor to make sure all is well.  

good luck
