Working too hard or normal??


So, I'm just barely 14weeks pregnant...never gotten this far. This is my 5th pregnancy. We've had 4m/c's just FYI before I get to the topic and questions.....
I work at in retail. I do some of the moving the store around and building and taking down some structures. I'm constantly up and down off the floor or just kneeling down and getting up. But I'm come to notice with the holidays some days are really stressful on the body and I feel I guess the word is "sore" or ... like down in the lower abdomen like its pinching nerves or a muscle is just being pinched. and the feeling doesn't hurt like all day but its here and itll be there for a few mins and then it'll go away but as soon as i get down on the floor or sit a certain way its back. Is it just my organs starting to adjust to the baby or is it too soon for that?
Should I just take it a little easier or is there nothing to do about it? Being I've never made it this far I don't know...anyone have answers for me???

It could just be normal pains as there is alot going on in your tummy ATM and the pinching etc you have described is normal.

If you can take it a bit easier then I would if I were you if only to see if the pains go away and might be caused by you straining your muscles too much. x

might be worth letting your employers known u are preg incase u shouldnt be moving things.if thats the case they should find u something else to do.u will feel stretching because your uterus and baby are growing.your work should do a risk assesment for u.

well the dr put me on a 5lb limit a little over a month ago and they wont let me touch hardly anything that might be too heavy. everyone is really understanding...but because i'm not lifting much i didnt know what else would cause the pain other than the stretching....
thank you for your comments =)
