  • Yup:) I'm on my 3rd and my lower back is KILLING me. It hurts just to walk around half the time

  • It maybe normal for you. I did not have alot of back pain until later in any of my pregnancies. But your body is unique. If this is your first child that could make a difference. You also could have a kidney infection. You might try laying on your back with something under your knees. This will shorten the tendons in your legs and take the pressure off your pelvis.

  • back pain is pretty common even this early in pregnancy. because your center of balance gets thrown off by the growing baby, even though it's not that big, your uterus still moves up.
    Corrina's suggestion of elevating your legs should help

  • TOTALLY NORMAL, I have six kids all girls, triplets was 16, twins when I was 18, and one single child when I was 22. Now I am 28, and having another set of twins, boys. I am kinda nervous because they are my first boys, but I can barely walk, sleep, or even take care of my kids. My husband does everything for me right now, I feel kinda bad.
