  • i had pain & cramping my whole pregnancy. it is probably just ligament pain. get a maternity belt, bc it will probably get worse. if you start bleeding or leaking anything then call your doctor.

  • It could be a few things: either its BH contractions, very normal, Sciatica pain, normal. But if the pain is going front and back it could be a kidney/bladder infection. I just got over a kidney infection and that is how I felt. My back hurt and I felt crampy like I had to go to the bathroom. I had a hard time sleeping and sitting up was very painful. I went to be checked the next day and it was a kidney infection :( another symptom is cloudy/dark urine. Good luck and I hope this helps!
