    Hey Girls, Is anyone else having severe back pain early on in their pregnancy? :huh: I'm trying to figure out if this is a normal pg symptom or something else. The pain is all along the right side.
    Thanks!! :hugs:

    I had back pain right from the start. It was the 1st sign that made me think I was pregnant. I had it from my lower back right up to my shoulders.
    I had to leave work coz it was so bad!!!!

    I had some horrible back pain in the first tri (along the right side) bad enough to go to the hospital and they just told me that some women get more back pain than others. Best of luck to you.

    My shoulders are really hurting. It's normal for some as the hormones loosen up all your ligaments.

    I had it terrible, between my shoulder blades and lower back 5/6 weeks. I've been pretty much ok that way since.

    I had back cramps though any severe pain should be told to you're doctor. When you say severe it makes me think of the worst pain possible and if you have severe then I would go see youre doctor. Never diagnose on the net by what other people go through. Back pain can be normal, can be an infection, an retroverted uterus etc... Different reasons for this type of pain. Hope you feel better and get seen hugs

    Thank you girls sooo much for the advice! My backpain has continued so I will be calling my doctor tomorrow. I'm sure it's just a pg symptom, but better safe than sorry.

    Thanks Ladies! :hugs: :hugs:

    Hi Zoey
    Just to add I have exactly the same thing - on and off from 4 weeks - very uncomfortable ache all up the right side of my back - can't find any comfortable position - bending forward helps slightly... it's a drag!
