  • shouldnt but anything is possible i guess. If its in your lower back you might wana call your dr it couldbe a sighn that you have a kidney infection.

  • yeah thats why i asked.. it could be a kidney infection.. or it could be your body adjusting to deal with the extra weight you'll gain from pregnancy

  • Yes you can get lower back pain in the first trimester.

    I noticed that you have flooded the pregnancy questions with several recent inquries. I would advise you to possibly go out and purchase a book like "What to expect when expecting."

    Books like this are great reads for first time moms and many of your questions would be answered, about the hiccups, when to determine the sex of the baby etc...

    You can purchase a book like this at Walmart, Target etc...

    Also many websites now offer women the chance to sign up for a weekly email that informs then what to expect each week in their pregnancy.
