  • yes, it happens a lot in pregnancy-even in the beginning. if you have never had serious back problems in the past, you have nothing to worry about! when the uterus grows, even by just a little bit, the rest of your body has to accommodate...and it can cause some aches and pains. hang in there :) you should be able to take tylenol too.

  • It depends. Does it feel like a cramping or is it a sharp pain? If it feels slight almost like your period is starting then it's normal. If it's a sharp pain then it could be a sign of miscarriage.
