  • Perfectly normal. Your body is changing and adjusting, lots of things will feel unusual and uncomfortable for many more weeks to come! Congrats :)

  • Yes. I had lower back pain before I even POAS!

    It doesn't seem to make sense - lower back pain in pregnancy you would think was related to carrying around a big belly full of baby - closer to 7,8,9 months - but it is really common in early pregnancy.

    It does get better! (but then it does often get painful again; carrying around a big belly full of baby around 7,8,and9 months gives you the lower back pain, too!)

  • I just found out yesterday that I am pg. Calculations put me @8wks. Lower back pain has always been a sign to me of my pregnancies. SO to answer your question, yes. VERY normal. My back has been achy nd felt hot for the last week. Try a dip in the pool or lukewarm ... not hot baths. Congrats!!

  • Yes, my back hurt more during the first and half the second trimester than it does now in my third trimester. Your body is putting out a hormone that loosens the joints, I forget what its called, another pregnancy symptom, I can't remember anything! Nor can I keep track of anything either. But yeah, its normal.
