  • Yep! Totally normal. Don't strain yourself too hard when pushing out #2 and ask your doctor about safe stool softeners. It also helped me to have my SO massage my lower back nightly.

    Good luck!

  • Try a stool softener or a natural laxative like sea salt water or an enema and see if that helps.

  • It could just be your uterus pressing on your lower parts. Remember it is expanding with a small human in there...I am not sure, but seem to remember that in the beginning of the pregnancy the uterus expands all around, but then later in the pregnancy it expands upwards. So it would make sense for you to feel pressure in the back, since you are not too far along yet. I am not a doctor though, so ask your doctor about it next time you go for an appt. There are no stupid questions.
