I am 37 weeks now and I have been having some menstrual like cramping for the past 24 hours. I also have some mild va___al pains and super sore back and hips. Is the menstrual cramping normal and what causes it? I am posting this in a couple of locations sorry but hopefully it will help me get a range of answers so sorry for repeating myself :)

maybe your body is getting ready for labor. do you get concraction? if its every 5mins, go to the H to check for dilation or something

i feel the same! my doctor said it was because the baby is headed down as far as she can, and it streaches the uterine & groin muscles. also, if the baby is faced towards your back, it causes a lot of back pain because its head cant flex around the pubic bone as well.! good luck!

During the first 10 or so hours of labor following my induction, my contractions felt like menstrual cramps. At that point, I was dilated to about a 5 and the doctor broke my water to really get things going. So, you might wanna give your doctor a call and see if maybe you're in pre-labor.
