Im 38 weeks pregnant and im getting period like cramps and low back pain can't cope with this pain anymore getting the cramps for 2 weeks now?

Sacroiliac joints: As the pregnancy nears completion, the joints and ligaments of the birth canal begin to loosen. The baby often rotates from breech to head down position.
