Thanks to everyone who offered (or thought) support.
My basal temp has gone back to normal. 98.7. Some of the pregnancy symptoms have returned. I admit I'm grateful not to have waves of nausea but not if it's a bad sign.
My best guess is the cramps came from the outing (dehydration doesn't help) and the low basal temp and ceasation of symptoms was from forgetting my progesterone. I normally have dips below the coverline during my luteal phase and the cream (small amount of progesterone that it is) helps them stay nice and high. I was wondering if I still really needed it now that I was actually pregnant and I guess the answer is YES!!
Yes, I've also discovered that forcing myself to put a little something in my stomach really keeps the nausea down or even away. Even if feel worse while eating it, I feel better after. I haven't seen a correlation between eating and cramps but I have between dehydration and cramps. I am prone to dehydration normally and am doing my best to keep it at bay during pregnancy, but it's very hard when you don't feel like swallowing.
I'm not out of the woods yet (or as my SO puts it, out of the womb) but the signs are good. Toni Weschler says a single dip in basal temp is not necessarily a sign of a MC but continuing low temps are for sure. Fortunately, mine was just the one day.
