is this normal? Rss

hi alex,
i've just had the wonderful surprise of finding out i am a few weeks pregnant with my second child. this baby is much wanted and planned but i didn't expect to fall so quickly.
i honestly can't remember much about the first few weeks of pregnancy with my first (now 18 months) i think i was in a bit of shock as she was an unexpected gift! so, to the point, i am experiencing a crampy like ache in my tummy and lower back ache. its not severe at all but i'm wondering if it's normal in the first weeks of pregnancy. (my period is only 3 days overdue but i've had 2 very strong quick positives from the doctor)
thankyou for your advice,
mel

Hi Mel,
Thank you for your enquiry. The discomfort that you are describing sounds perfectly normal. This is the ligaments stretching as the uterus grows. It should settle in a week or two and if there is no bleeding, there is nothing to be concerned about.

Best wishes,
Alex.
