Is lower back pain or stiffness common in early pregnancy?
It's not just common, it's practically a requirement! But it'll be worse pretty soon from carrying all that extra weight in front of you. Good luck! Answer Yes, it is quite common. And, unfortunately to tell you, it is probably not going to get any better. If it seems to unbearable at times, you should contact your doctor about certain medications that he/she approves of, or going to a chiropractor( but make sure the chiropractor knows you are pregnant).

This isn't normal but it is reasonably common. Many women experience bleeding in the early part of pregnancy. Often it will settle and the pregnancy proceeds as normal. However, the cramps are not a particularly great sign. The combination can mean you will or are having a miscarriage. See your doct…or so they can perform further tests to see if this actually is the case. ( Full Answer )
It can be many things...if it is in the morning, I would suggest testing your bed. Try sleeping in another bed for two nights and see if the stiffness continues. If not, you'll know it is your mattress. Buy a new one, and ask the salesperson what mattress is good for sore backs.. It can be a certai…n muscle you've strained. If the irritaion persists, make an appointment with your doctor. They can check and see what's going on below the surface.. Meanwhile, be gentle with it. Don't bend and lift too much, and be careful when working out, or doing outdoor activities. Purchase a few heating pads for your back such as IcyHOt patches. ( Full Answer )

I have sharp pains in my lower back near my sciatic accomponied with cramping around my ovaries. Could this be an early sign of pregnancy or is it more likely to be endometriosis?
Unfortunately some endometrioses patients may be completely asymptomatic while others experience emotional and physical pain that is almost unbearable. For those who are not asymptomatic, the patients may experience anywhere from one to all of the following symptoms: pain before and during periods, …pain with intercourse, general, chronic pelvic pain through the month, low back pain, heave and/or irregular periods, painful bowel movements, painful urination during menstruation, fatigue, infertility, diarrhea or constipation, nausea and vomiting, headaches, pain during intercourse, low-grade fevers, depression, hypoglycemia, anxiety and increased susceptibility to infections or allergies . According to Harvard Women's Health Watch , the most common symptom that most women experience with endometriosis is severe menstrual cramps, gastrointestinal problems, and pain during intercourse. Women who experience postpartum endometriosis, generally have different symptoms than those who develop endometriosis naturally. Their symptoms are generally fever, increased pulse, chills, anorexia, nausea, fatigue and lethargy, pelvic pain, uterine tenderness and/or foul smelling. Some women may also become anemic. Within 36 to 48 hours, blood cultures should reveal any evidence of endometriosis. Your symptoms of pregnancy will usually appear anywhere from the first week of your expected period to 1-2 weeks after your first week of expected period. Your first signs of pregnancy most commonly include missed period, tender/swollen breasts, change in color of the breasts, fatigue, nausea/vomiting, increased sense of smell, and weight gain.Here is a link to a website that will calculate the probability of your pregnancy: http://www.thepregnancytest.com/ ( Full Answer )

If you really think you are pregnant and have pain in the right shoulder you need to go to the doctor. Thats a sign of ectopic pregnancy!
It is a possibility, but I wouldn't rely on just back pain as a sign that you're pregnant, it could be because you've slept in an awkward position or other reasons. But if you're worried, see your doctor to rule out all possibilities.
Cramping, yes. Mild Cramping that is! The kind of cramps you feel right before you start your period is normal. However if they are severe there may be a problem.. As far as long back pain that as well may be a sign of early pregnancy, it kinda goes hand in hand with the cramping.. Also due to the… fact that your ligaments are stretching since your uterus is growing that can cause both the cramping and back pain. ( Full Answer )
You should ask your doctor, but let me assure you pain and bleeding is not necessarily an indication of anything bad. Some women have light "periods" and spotting during pregnany. Heavy bleeding can indicate miscarriage.

I think it varies for everyone. I know with my first pregnancy I had a lot of lower back and sciatica in my first trimester. It started around week 9. Then it went away for a few months and was back at the end. Just be careful because if it is very early and is cramp like it can sometimes be an indi…cator of miscarrying. I have also experienced this. ( Full Answer )
I had a prickling pain in my lower abdomen during the early stages of my pregnancy.
Yes, it can be. As the body prepares for the rapid expansion to come, it starts to cramp. Usually it's only around the uterus, but it can spread to other ares including the abdominal, back, and legs. If the pain gets to be unbearable or cannot be relieved by pain medications, showering, or massaging… you should see a doctor about it. ( Full Answer )
Your one week past nine months, and experiencing a variety of symptoms of concern to you. Yes, you should contact your doctor. He will know about your situation, and can advise you as to what - if anything - needs to be done.
Most often the pain appears in the later months or becomes worse as pregnancy progresses.
While there are many diagnoses and reasons that are commonly given to explain the cause of lower back pain and how it starts, the most fundamental and primary reason for painful problems of the back is soft tissue inflammation. Soft tissue inflammation is the basic mechanism by which pressure and… irritation are directly applied to the spinal nerves and muscles that register the pain signal that tells us something is wrong in the low back. It is present in all types and stages of arthritis, direct trauma, disc protrusion and rupture, and stenosis; all of these conditions can be said to be the cause of lower back pain, but it is soft tissue inflammation that is the common component of all of these that generates the actual nerve contact to trigger the pain signal.

Contact a doctor! Don't over drug yourself or it will be bad during your pregnancy.
Yes. Your uterus is growing and stretching rapidly to accomodate the new life growing inside you. These first pains you feel in early pregnancy feel much like regular period cramps, and are often mistaken for such. However, you need to call your doctor immediately if you have cramping with dizziness…, light-headedness, fainting or shortness of breath, as these could be signs of ectopic pregnancy.
