I experienced back pain til about 2weeks ago. It was never any worse than what I had with my period. Ask your doctor or midwife about it and about maybe taking tylenol for the pain. My midwife was okay with using tylenol in the first trimester but I heard some doctors prefer you wait til the second trimester.

Lower back pain is considered a common early sign of pregnancy.  I experienced lower back pain early on, but it subsided after 12w or so.  Now is a good time to strengthen and stretch the back muscles using yoga or pilates to keep it from being too painful in the 3rd trimester.  Hope all goes well in your 2nd pregnancy.
