I am five weeks preggers andhave already noticed some changes in my body. I won't get into everything but there's one constant: for the past week I have been feeling pressure on my tailbone off and on (mostly when I would sit or lay down) but two nights ago, it started becoming constant and I tossed and turned uncomfortably all night long (sorry DH!). Ever since then, it has been hard to focus on much else. It's not painful at all, it's just lots of ever-present pressure that feels like something inside is pushing back on my tailbone or that something is pulling back on the end of my tailbone. Told the girls at work (who have each had a few kids) that it feels like I'm growing a tail. Lol. They told me matter of factly: "It sounds like you're having a back pregnancy". They went on to describe how it's supposedly when you carry the baby against your back instead of more towards your front an you won't show as early or get as big as most women (yippie!) but it will be extremely painful on your back in the third trimester and after delivery, you will have bad back problems (BUM...MER). I did some research and all I found that I thought they could be talking about was a retroverted or tilted uterus which I know don't have.
Have any of you ladies heard of this "back pregnancy"? My first appointment is pretty soon and since I'm not in pain, I don't want to bother my doctor but I'm so curious if any of you ladies have experienced it or know about it or have experienced it..? Any info. Is greatly appreciated! ~thanks!

To be honest, I have never heard the term back pregnancy before. Having pressure like that is completely normal in the first trimester, especially in the very beginning when everything is starting to shift.

In my opinion, you are probably experiencing normal pregnancy symptoms. Your doctor will definitely be able to answer these questions when your appointment comes up.

I have never had that or heard of it. But agree with Joanna that pressure down there as your uterus grows and shifts things to make room is totally normal. Congratulations on your pregnancy.

Have you ever been told that you have a tilted uterus? That is what a back pregnancy is. I have one that is tipped to the back and it does cause some back discomfort in the beginning. I also had a lot of back labour. I showed plenty though. It is nothing to worry about.
