  • just sit back and enjoy being pregnant. you're gonna have back pain, the pressure is probably braxton hick (which start at about 6-8 weeks), and you're gonna discharge a lot.

  • agree with first answer. It's just your uterus putting pressure on everything. Everything is shifting and yes it could be braxton hicks which won't really kick in on full swing till about 32 weeks but unless it's a mucus plug and bleeding you don't have anything to worry about it's normal all apart of wonderful body changing pregnancy if it's really bothersome to you take warm baths and use a body pillow to support your back and stomach I'm 12 weeks with little back pain and crampy feelings and I sleep with a pillow in between my legs and let it support my belly off the bed it feels so much better.
