Hello. Well, as many of you know, i am 8 weeks pregnant now, and got to see my baby and heartbeat at 7 weeks! About a week ago, i started getting this lower backache. Not menstrual feeling at all, just a pain. It usually gets worse when i am doing things around the house, but i dont seem to remember having it with my first pregnancy. Also from time to time, i get a dull ache in my lower belly. Not painful, but just dull. Is this normal?? Also do any of you know if the chances of miscarriage lowers after you have seen the baby and heartbeat on ultrasound? Thanks!
I had bad back pain from the begining til the end of my last pregnancy and I have a healthy 23 month old. I am pregnant again, 4 weeks and have experienced implantation spotting and cramping, which I never experienced with either of my DS. I think every pregnancy is different, inluding weight gain, symptoms and pains and aches. If you experience more discomfort while performing certain activities such as standing for long preiods of time, or house chores, you should try to minimize those activities. Now is the time when you will need to rely on DH or a sister or best friend to help you with little things. Feel better and I hope everything is okay!
If you saw a hb in normal range for dates (they're posted online), had crl (size) match dates and have had no bleeding/cramping, then I think it is true your risk goes way down, to about 5% while in first tri. They usually reschedule you if any of that info doesn't match up.
My doc at 12wks just told me that with the u/s now showing right size, good hb (156 I think), minimal nuchal thickness and having had no problems, moving out of first trimester, that I could be at less than 1% risk. We just got our Downs risk back too at 1/400 which is way better than for my age group (at 43, risk had been 1/22 before this testing).
I have the upper backache myself now, think from carrying around these giant boobs that aren't mine. Good luck to you! (Try ice-ing?)
