Pregnancy Backache

I'm just over 14 weeks pregnant, and over the last couple of days I've started to develop backache, which I understand is perfectly normal!

I am, however, at a stage where I am struggling to stand up, walk or wipe my own arse (excuse the vulgarity, but I couldn't really think of a polite way to put it!) and I'm pretty sure that that cannot be normal? Will it go away or am I going to be stuck like this for the next 6 months?

I've not done anything out of the usual that would have caused this. My partner says I should go to the doctors, but I just can't bring myself to waste a doctors time because I'm pregnant and have backache.

Pregnancy can cause back ache but it usually not until later. It really is worth going to your doctor as you could have a bad water infection or something. Or may have pulled a ligament. It shouldn't cause that much pain and for me back ache was a bad sign. Not saying it is for you but worth getting it checked out. A doctor won't think you are wasting their time x

I had backaches in my fifth month .

Baby was sitting on a nerve but if went away I a few weeks

Yes yes yes

Check with dr


I'm going to assume that you had a scan recently and all was fine with baby so it's possible that you have/had a kidney infection. Best check in with a GP for any niggle in pregnancy as even a small thing might be worth a visit.


Hello how's the back? Did u go to docs? X
