Menstrual-like cramps

I will be 21 weeks tomorrow and for the past two weeks or so, I've been having menstrual-like cramps.  They don't come at any particular time, and like period cramps, it hurts in my lower abdomen and back. Are these Braxton Hicks? Why am I experiencing this?

Beaxton hicks shouldn't be painful and shouldn't go to your back, you might wanna give your doctor a call and see what they recommend.
