Why do you get lower back pain during pregnancy?

First, it depends WHERE in your back you feel pain. As one example, Flank Pain (on the sides, right above the waist/hips) can be a kidney infection. Second, it depends on HOW much you weighed before and now. Third, it depends on WHAT trimester you are in, and WHETHER you had any prior back pain. Generally speaking, and directly related to pregnancy (without any other minor or major non-pregnancy cause), pregnant women can have abdominal or back pain as the uterus stretches, the fetus grows, and as the woman puts on extra weight. Women can have hip pain as hormones begin to stretch and relax ligaments; this can worsen in the third trimester in preparation for birth.

In fact,vaginal bleeding is a common problem in early pregnancy, complicating 20-30% of all pregnancies. Many people continue to have it for many months of their pregnancy and some continue throughout. There are some statistics that show a high percent of women with first trimester bleeding go on to have a miscarriage. This number may be as high as 50% Also, severe pain or bleeding during early pregnancy may be a sign of a serious problem known as ectopic pregnancy. You should see a doctor right away if you are pregnant or believe you are and have bleeding and pain. 3% of women with first trimester bleeding turn out to have this problem. Any bleeding in the second or third trimester of pregnancy is consider abnormal and a medical professional should be consulted. The bottom line is if you are pregnant and having vaginal bleeding, see a health care provider.
