  • It's normal as long as they aren't regular, increasing in frequency and intensity, or accomanied by leaking fluid or bleeding. It's not too early for you to have Braxton-Hicks contractions, the sharp pains are probably from your ligaments stretching for your growing belly, and your back is going to hurt from the change in your posture. Don't be afraid to call the doctor if you need reassurance, though. It never hurts to be safe.
