The strong cramping are called braxton hix contractions. Which are false labor pains. A lot of my friends had this. You also want to watch for severe leg cramps in the tops of your legs. This is a very rare labor pain, but it is a labor pain. Talk to your doctor.

Braxton Hicks Contractions are - at the beginning of pregnancy - painless little movements of your baby in your uterus. Although, once you hit about 37 weeks, they are horrible. They are often confused with labor contractions. They become rhythmic and feel like they don't stop. They can be uncomfortable, but they can dilate you. They get their name from an English doctor named John Braxton Hicks who first diagnosed them in 1872.
