Im 22+5 with DC2. My DS was born 10 weeks premature at 29+5 and stayed in SCBU for 6 weeks.
I had a scan last week, and despite a scare 4 weeks ago when I was told that I needed to be very careful and rest as much as possible, last week I was told all was fine and that I was mis-informed by the other hospital (I was seen at different hospitals as currently visiting family abroad).
The doctor was lovely and re-assuring. He did a thorough scan and said there was no reason for me not to carry on as normal (obviously within my limits!)
I have had terrible back pain today and my bump is aching quite a bit. I feel very stiff and sore.
The birth of DS started with similar symptoms to this- I had been prescribed codiene a few weeks before he was born due to the constant back pain and even though I felt something was wrong, I was sent home 3 times in the week leading up to his birth.
Plesae can somebody give me reassurance that back pain is normal at this stage. My first pregnancy seemed to be over before I knew it so unfortunately I dont remember much!
I will give anything for a longer pregnancy this time around- I just hope this pain isnt a sign of things to come
I have back pain and pain in my pelvis after a full days hard work looking after two toddlers and walking the dog. I am 25 weeks with dc3, putting it down to the softer ligaments in pregnancy. I wish you luck that you have a longer pregnancy this time.
