    Hi Girls,

    Im approx 5 1/2 weeks. Last week I had aching down my side and my lower back, this went after 2 days.

    I now have it back, on the right hand side of my lower back. Its aching so much its hurting and kept me up all night. I feel like crying as it wont go away.

    I know I cant have any pain killers but does anyone have any advice on how to ease the pain?
    Also is this aching normal?

    Thanks,
    Tess xxx

    Hi Tess

    I had lower back pain around weeks 5-7, a few of the girls on here have also had it. It went away with me and came back around week 10 and has gone again. It did not keep me awake or anything so think you should phone the midwife who will advise and put your mind at rest. You can take 1 gram (2 tabs) of paracetamol. Hope you feel better soon.

    xx

    I have heard that if you have a tipped uterus (which affects about 20% of women) you are more likley to get back pain in pregnancy but I also think anyone can get it. Ia agree though I would call the doctor just to ease your mind.
