  • This is normal. It's going to get worse as you get bigger.

  • I've had lower back pains my whole pregnancy! This was my first so I consider that normal and the doctors never said it was bad! So I would assume you're safe! Good luck with your pregnancy!!!

  • I think its normal. My lower back started aching when I was bout 6 weeks preg both times. The bigger I got the worst the pain got. Yo may jst want to mention it to dr at your next checkup jst to make sure you don't have an infection though!! Good luck

  • hormone levels and blood pressure changes due to the redirection of blood flow.... mention it to your doctor they can check for all of that
