Bad back and belly pains...

I am about 9 weeks pregnant. a few times a day I am getting short but intense pains in my stomach, and my back hurts by the end of everyday. I know this is a silly question, but this is my 2nd pregnancy (my 1st ended in miscarriage at 10 weeks) so I am new to this... are these pains normal?

  • Yes those are normal pains; most likely due to ligaments stretching in your abdomen that haven't been stretched before. If the pain gets intense or turns to severe cramping call your doctor.

  • I second rachael. It does sound like ligaments stretching, but if they start getting to the point of you considering taking tylenol for them I would talk with your doctor. I would also suggest finding a chiropractor. It will help alot as the pregnancy progresses.
