it could be totally normal. The back pains could just be constipation. The sharp pains could be your body REALLY wanting to go to the bathroom but can't. I had those same pains like right away. Abdominal pains of course is your uterus stretching and growing and the extra weight. It's not much extra weight, fractions of an ounce, but it's still more than it's used to. It is different for everyone but don't stress yourself out worrying about it all the time. If this is your first pregnancy it can be so scary. But trust your instincts. If you truely feel something is wrong, call your doc to see you right away. Or go to the hospital if the doc can't see you right away. I' ve been to the hospital because I was becoming short of breath. Apparently its totally normal but I didn't know. YAY! your gonna have a baby!
