intense cramping

I'm 10 weeks and 4 days. Last night I started having really bad cramps. They kept me up until 6:30am. It got better up until earlier today and started up again. Last night it was about a 51/2 out of 10. 10 being really painful. Right now it's about the same. I feel the pain in my legs and hips. I talked to the on call doctor that's at my OBGYNs office and all he said was as long as there's no bleeding I should just go on with my day. This is my first pregnancy so I'm not sure what's normal pregnancy cramping and what's not. I feel like I got no answers from the doctor I called. ☹️
