Out of 8 pregnancies *I* have never had lower back pain that early in pregnancy. Usually not until the end of the first trimester, but it's possible.  

You can not count on it as a definate sign of pregnancy though.  The best thing to do would be to wait until tomorrow, if you period still has not shown, take a FRER with FMU.  Good luck.

I had lower back pain early on. Pretty much everything is a symptom of pregnancy :) It is hard to know what is what. Try testing again.

Hey, I was wondering the same thing, I actually had to go to the ER it was so bad, i also had a lot of abdominal pressure and breat tenderness they told me nothing was wrong they didnt see anything abnormal but it was still too early to test for pregnancy.

But to answer your question my doctor said that yes lower back pain and abdominal pain could be a sign of implantation!
