Hi All,

As this is my 1st im unsure what to expect.

So far my pregnancy has been ok , no sickness just very tired and sore boobs however woke up today with lower back pain like up over my bum , very sore is this normal ?

Checked on internet but loads of different openions ??



  • BONNIE congrats on your pregnancy, i hate back pain i get very worried if i have that. if your back is very sore you can contact your gp. otherwise some pains are normal when you preg coz your baby is growing

  • Thanks Yogueta,

    Yep its just today very sore like a ache in my lower back havent had this at all a lot of friends are telling me its normal and to count myself lucky as i have escaped the morning sickness bit ,

    hope its just as you said my body changing and growing before i got pregant i would have lower back pain maybe its normal ,

    thanks xxxxxxx


  • Hey Bonnie 

    I'm 7 weeks and have this too! I had back ache just after BFP for two weeks then it stopped and now it's back. I also have the odd sharp pain in ribs at back - sure it's all the streching and growing xx

  • Hi

    Just off phone to maternity hosp & Gp both says nothing i can do that not spotting and to take panadol , i hope its just normal im getting very worried and nervous feel sick with thoughts of something bad happening

  • Ah hun - we all have it so try not to worry. 

    For last two days I had awful cramps and back ache and was also worried sick. 


    Try and rest and just relax as much as possible. No spotting is a good sign xx

  • ah thansk Minnie22

  • Hi Minnie22,

    When do you get your 1st scan in hospital in Ireland its not until 12 weeks so i have another 4 to wait have you had yours ?



  • No - my boobs arent sore at all - just nipples but even that's worn off. If you are not spotting honestly try not to worry hun - they say weeks 7-10 the most happens so prob gives the most pains! xx

  • 12 weeks for me too hun - dont even see midwife until 9 week.x

  • if you cant wait for a scan you can go private so that you can make your mind at peace thats help me alot if im not sure about something i go for a scan private

  • Hi all,

    Well i ended up down in my maternity hospital emergency last night , The pain got so bad i was vommitttin gwith it and white in the face , they brought me straight in my blood pressure was high but that could of been all the worry anyhow

    so i had no urine infection and they cannot tell what is causing the pain as its very intesnse but told me no more then can do but panadol i have to go back down next week for check up ,,

    They did a scan for me to make sure heart beat still going and it was there flickering away , i have attached a photo xxxx

    Heat patches & hot water bottles




  • Aw hun that sounds horrible but glad you got checked out and that the baby is ok image Nice you got another sneaky peak too! 

    Hope you're feeling lots better today x

  • Hi Bonnie,

    Love the scan picture! Hope it reassured you seeing that heartbeat. I had the exact same thing - in hospital at 7 weeks with bad pains and got a scan like yours. I'm still experiencing lower back pain every day, like a dull ache, but find sitting with a pillow rested under it helps. Try not to worry, I think for some of us it's normal.
