I'm only 7 weeks pregnant but back is so painful, feels like someone has crushed my ribs! Is this normal? I'm in agony!!!

Strange at 7 weeks. Go and get it checked

I've had this a few times in pregnancy, really painful. I went to see a Gynae Physio, and she said it's a lot more common than people think to have really bad back pain the the first trimester. She said 50% of the women she sees were 6-12 weeks. Ligaments loosening can be very painful, esp if you have any lower back problems anyway. I'd see the GP and you might have to push a bit. The first two times I had this, I got told "it's normal" bit the third time when I made a bit more fuss, they referred my to physio and it really helped. Good luck, hope it eases soon!

I had this around 7-8 weeks and it went away after a week or so smile

I had this early on , it was gone by 12 weeks but returned at around week thirty. Rest was the only thing that made it any better unfortunately.
