Cramping & lower back pain after IUI

I had my first IUI on Thursday and it was a tad uncomfy during the procedure and afterwards I came home and laid on the couch all day because on top of getting my IUI I had a darn sinus infection so I felt crappy anyways. I didn't notice any other symptoms the rest if the night. Yesterday I got up feeling better from my sinus infection but was crampy all day and my lower back hurts. I was like that all day yesterday so I just rested and now I woke up today and still crampy and back ache. The paper work my dr gave me said its common to have some cramping after the IUI bit doesn't say for how long and nothing about back ache. Anyone ever experience this? I hope it's a good sign but thinking its probably a common sign.

NICOLE- I had some back pain after one of my IUI's. We ended up trying 5. I called the doctor's office back b/c he was a good friend and they told me that if it didn't go away in 48 hours to come back in. That part of your body is particularly sensitive and after an IUI can feel like it's been through a mess.
