Hi hon I am just a bit further than you and I also suffer with terrible backpain. I have to sleep a certain way at night and if i turn on my tummy in my sleep I can cry from the pain. I had a m/c in June and I had no backpain. Try a gentle rub from you oh .. mine works

I think that it's because all your muscles are relaxing and your pelvis is getting ready to open up so you're more likely to pinch nerves and pull muscles.
And, even though baby is tiny at the moment, it will be altering your centre of gravity and pulling your belly forward without you really noticing, making your back arch more...
Unfortunately i think it's just part of being pregnant!
A lot of ladies get sciatica when they are pregnant, that's when you get pins and needles down your leg cos of trapped nerves.
I have an old back condition and it's already being aggravated.
If you sleep on your back, try putting a pillow behind your knees to lift your legs, changes the angle of your pelvis and may help. Or if you sleep on your side, try a pillow between your knees, reduces the pressure pulling your pelvis. I have a 4 foot long pillow that i have slept with for years now because of my back. It's really helped me to cuddle it when i'm sleeping.
(Not that i'm sleeping well at the moment either - stomach seems to be going into stretch over drive)
I really wouldn't worry about your baby, back pain is a common side effect of pregnancy!
Give your doc/midwife a call if you are still worried tomorrow

I was told by my OB that back pain is usually normal in pregnancy. I've had days where I have severe back pain, out of nowhere in the middle of the day - to the point of crying, and she told me that it's just baby pushing against my spine in combination with hormones, changes in posture, muscles, etc.

My back seems to hurt a lot in the morning. I wake up several times at night and can feel the pain increasing every time. Always in the same spot. Try a heating pad, I'm actually using one right now! Massages are great as well.

If you're really concerned, just make a quick call to your midwife.
