Abdominal pain

Hi, I was delighted to get my BFP last week and am now 19dp5dt. I can't help but sorry something is not right as I seem to constantly have pains in my abdomen and lower back. At night the pain in my lower back is really sore. In the morning I don't often have the pains but when turn over from back to side I get shooting pains across my tummy. Apart from that have no other pregnancy symptoms. Terrified something is wrong. I did a digital test on my date last week and it said 1-2 weeks, did another one 2 days ago and it said 2-3 weeks. Have early scan at hospital in 3 weeks. This is my first cycle and have never been pregnant so have no idea what to expect. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks in advance!

I had period type pain & lower back ache for weeks with my current pregnancy. The back pain was fairly bad at times too. I'm 26 weeks now & still have days where I get the pain. I had very few symptoms either, a day of sickness at exactly 6 weeks & around a week of headaches / nausea at 8 weeks. I hope everything works out for you xx

Thank you, just keep thinking about all the people Who have natural pregnancies and say they didn't know they were pregnant as did not feel anything. Willing this scan on!! Thanks again, wishing you the best of luck with your pregnancy! x

I'm 12 weeks pregnant and have had some pretty bad abdominal and lower back pain, especially when I've been moving around a lot.

I've had a lot of surgery for endometriosis and my midwife says it's adhesions stretching and pulling and possibly ligament pain. I think the general consensus is that if there's no bleeding, it's just one of those things we have to put up with!

Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy. X

Hi M1980. If this persists, I would see your GP just in case yo have developed a urine infection, which is quite common early in pregnancy. Make sure you drink plenty of water, just in case you have, or your ovaries are still a bit active, and take some paracetamol if you need to, unless something else is prescribed for you. Hope you soon feel better and your pregnancy continues without problems. Diane
