Many women are constipated during pregnancy - especially in the beginning - a fetus takes what it needs from a mother's system and this can cause changes in bowel movements

Yes, very normal. They are caused by the pregnancy hormones

No, normally there is minimal weight gain during the first trimester, most of the pregnancy weight gain occurs during the second trimester.

No, spotting after straining on the toilet is not normal in the first trimester. Any spotting or bleeding during pregnancy is not considered to be normal. While it could be implantation bleeding, it would be wise to get examined by your doctor or obstetrician.

Just about anything can be normal. You have a lot of hormones being produced in overtime during the first trimester. If you are still concerned talk to your doctor. They will be able to help you better.

Back ache can occur at any trimester and the causes are different on different occasions. Bleeding in the first trimester or at any time during pregnancy is not normal.
