Sping-I am 4 weeks and going through the same thing.I think we are beginning to stretch and that is causing a lot of pain.Has your low back been hurting-mine has been killing me.It's nice to find someone that understands the way I am feeling because you are feeling the same.What other symptoms are you having?

Michelle-Congrats on the pregnancy.I've read a lot that your round ligaments stretching can cause some pain.It seems like a lot of mommys to be have backaches too.I was having the aching with muscle cramps horribly all over and I started taking vitamins and it helped ALOT!With my 1st child My thighs ached really bad that I couldn't sleep and my doc said it was a lack of either calcium or vitamins.Try taking some if you aren't already.I also started drinking Powerade too incase I was dehydrated.It's good that you are going to the dr's just to make sure everythings ok. I think you and the baby will be fine just think positive and don't stress. I go to the drs too on Monday.Write back and let us know how everything is.

Yep, it sucks but it is normal! :) My lower backhurts and I am aching all the time...doesn't help that I have a history of fibromyalgia and am off my meds due to the tadpole. Once things settle a bit it should level off.... aching right along with you all!!

Hello all....Michelle and Spring glad to see you got your BFP!! I think I was chatting with you 2 in "AM I PREGNANT" anyways, ive also had a m/c and now having some mild to severe (rarely) aching my my lower back. I too have to sleep with a pillow between my legs or in a tiny ball all curled up to ease this pain....It hurts when im sitting or lying down, but if i stand up, it eases off. Let me know what the doc says. I go tomorrow, so ill let you guys know.

well unfortunatly i lost the baby this 3rd m/c. i was having alot of pain on my left side then when i stood up i started bleeding i went to the Er and a miscarriage was confirmed. im upset but we're not going to give up. my doctor is going to run some tests so we can figure out whats going on in there. well good luck to you all i hope everything works out for you guys...
