Pain at 5 weeks pregnant?

I just found out I was pregnant 4 days ago. I have been in a bit of my abdomen and back. It feels like something pulling or stretching in my stomach/abdomen. Is this normal?

  • I was sore alot around that time also. My doctor just said that my body may be making room for baby and stretching out.

  • Yes, my back was killing me and I thought it was just from getting ready to get my period. And then sometimes in the middle of the night I get those pains like something is pulling!
