    Thanks waterlily and tiggerfiels, very reassuring to hear.

    Has anyone had back pains at night? I've been sleeping on my sides and by the middle of the night, I wake up with terrible pains (mostly lower back but sometimes middle too). it's been going on since I was about 11 weeks.
    It seems to calm down when I'm on my back, but I'm not a back sleeper, so find it hard to fall back asleep...

    Does this have to do with the retro uterus, or just general pregnancy? Any tips on how to manage it?
    (sorry for my ignorance, I'm a first timer)

    I didn't know that they tilted forward. Wow I even asked when pregnant with dd would my tilted uterus effect labour

    With dd I started showing around 22-24 weeks and started getting kicks around 22 weeks

    With newbie I started showing 16-17 weeks and started getting kicks at 16. Last night I even felt them externally and im currently 18 weeks. Though during the mornings it still looks like I've had a little pot belly from eating lunch lol

    I didn't have back pain so maybe it's not a retro issue? Mention it to the doc, maybe a physio can give you some exercises to do.

    I got lots of back pain. My labour pains were all in my back too.

    I found nothing helped really. I used lots of heat packs!

    I have a retroverted uterus, with DS1 I didnt show at all until 27 weeks, unless I was laying on my back and it 'popped' up. I was only 60kg so not big either. But I also suffered from hypremesis and lost 12kg before I got to 16 weeks, so that probabky didjt help either.

    I kept getting told DS1 was going to be tiny, around 5-6 pound - he was born at 42 weeks 8pd3!

    Another one with a retroverted uterus, I'm 20wks + and have only started now to really show a bump as opposed to looking bloated, but I am ordinarily not a big person and and my babies are all around 6lbers etc.

    The only time it's been an issue (having one) was with scans, but that's easily solved and everyone I have seen about my prolapse have all asked me 'do you have a retroverted uterus', as apparently having one can make you more prone to suffering a prolapse.

    I think the back pain is part and parcel of being pregnant unfortunately.

    Thank you so much everyone for your input!

    I have an early screening scan this week, and I'm sure the dr will also do an internal (as he did at the NT) to check my cervix so I will know if my uterus is still tilted or not...I'll ask about the back pains then too.
