Can anyone please tell me if this is normal? I have not scheduled my 1st doctors appt. I guess I want to wait until 8 wks. I'm very scared because I had a miscarraige a year ago and have been trying to get pregnant ever since. Just this past week I've had constant lower back pains for the past 2 days with occasional cramping in all areas of my tummy. I feel a lot of pressure in my stomach, it feels bloated and full. I have a hard time sleeping because of my lower back pains. Am I just freaking out? I'm just worried.
I have had cramping and back pain during pregnancy, i think in part to endometriosis.. And your body is getting adjusted to being pregnant. Is it close to your menstrual cycle? That could also be the cause, try not to stress till your appt. Good luck and congrats!
It sounds normal to me. When I went to my first appointment at 6 weeks, I told the doctor I've been having back pain and cramps in my lower stomach, she says it's because my body is making room for the baby. However, you should tell your doctor all the symptoms you may be experiencing.
