    Hi everyone, congratulations on all your bubs! I'm just popping over from TTC because I can't find any answers anywhere else on the net.

    I know a lot of women have bad backs during early pregnancy, but what does it actually feel like for you? Is it an ache, or is it more like a muscle twitch/spasm/pull/twinge?

    I'm asking because ever since maybe 6dpo I've had some random muscle twinges in my back whenever I get up off the sofa, or stretch out in bed and I can't tell whether it's just because I've strained a muscle or if I can put it down as a possible symptom. I never get any problems with my back during the two week wait so it's out of the ordinary for me.

    Thanks in advance! :flower: xx

    My backache started a few days ago. It's more of a dull, constant ache than a pain. GL!

    hi - strangely it was my bad back that made me test again (I had tested 4 days before and bfn) I had an achey lower back all day and the only way to get relief was to put my hands on my hips and stick my tummy out. went home, did another test, and there it was, bfp, clear as anything! good luck! x

    I agree, mine is a dull, constant pain. You probably did strain a muscle. Best of luck to you!

    I've had severe lower back pain like someone's kicked me up the arse, radiating down my thigh bones. It's there one day then gone the next. I've also pulled muscles in my groin which is weird.
