Back pains = pregnant?????

We are TTC our 2nd. I am 7 days late. My back hurts on the sides and i was wondering if this is a sign of being pregnant. I know the typical ones are breast tender, peeing a lot.. but has anyone had back pain as a symptom? ( pregnancy test say - ) I think it could still be too soon to tell! one day feels like a year while TTC!

  • Anything is possible, we are all different. One weird early symptom I always have is one day I counted, I burped 86 times in 15 hours! LOL, so it could be. Try another test in a day or the time you miss your period you should have been able to get a positive, but you may have ovulated a little later than you think and it may really be too early to tell!

  • Oh girl I know what you mean...We have been ttc for a couple of months now and I will tell you it has its ups and downs. As for the not a sure fire way to tell. Everyone is different. Now I did have some back pain when I found out I was preggo...but 9 times out of 10 when I am having bad back pain I usually have a killer period. That was this last week. My boobs were sore and everything and I was like oh yeah I got to be preggo...and NOPE....oh well next month I hope it gets better for ya. Take some tylenol-- that one is safe to take if you are preggo to help your back. And remember take a test once a week until you do start. ~babydust to you

  • Doubt it. The baby wouldn't even be the size of a pea

  • You could be, I don't believe it's a symptom, However every women is different. I believe it's too soon, I would give it just a litte bit of time. Take a test 1 week or so after missed or expected period. Good luck to you!

  • actually sometimes peeing more is a sign and not because of the size of the baby but the fact that hormone levels are changing and hormones can do all kinds of crazy things including making you have to pee more frequently.
    but i dont know about if your pregnant or not.
    is it possible that af is just on its way? maybe
    or you did something to hurt your back, slept wrong? something?
