This may very well be another 'complaining about being pregnant' thread however im starting to become a little concerned with what im experiencing....
Im only early days pregnant (8weeks) and ive had an early dating scan. So far everything is going normal/fine.
Today i have been so sore. We went out for a bit of shopping and lunch and i just came home in a heap. My whole lower abdomen all the way around to my lower back was aching. I layed down in bed for a bit and it did help a bit. I also took some panadol. I feel nausious and It feels like i need to pee all the time. Sometimes alot of wee comes out and sometimes only a small amount when i thought i was 'full' if that makes sense? It doesnt hurt when i wee.
Also when we went to have lunch, i thought i was starving. I had 2 mouthfulls and felt like i was about to spew. It was horrible. I got dizzy and felt really ill in the stomach. Then on the way home i saw a donut van and scoffed 3 big jam donuts. WTF?
What im getting at is it usual to experience this lower abdomen pain all around to my lower back? to the point i need to lay down and rest? I wouldnt explain it as period pain, its more of an overall ache that lingers.
I just hope it's not signs of early m/c. I cant help but think the worst.
I never experienced this pain with my first bub either and have never had a m/c.
Any advice would be helpful right now. Thanks.

I think the nausea/spewy feeling is normal in pregnancies... some women feel that way during one pregnancy and not at all the next...
As for the pain, could be your muscles stretching? i feel a bit that way myself and im 10 weeks... everyone says to me it's normal... maybe just see your gp for reassurance.. good luck hun.

Eek sounds like it could be a uti or kidney infection! Or it could just be normal pregnancy stuff..

If you don't have the best muscle tone or if you have very high muscle tone in the lower abdomen area you may get pains either from muscles that don't work much being made to work or highly toned muscles working in a way you have never asked them to before.
Check with your Dr but sounds pretty normal.
Food stuff is totally normal, you may not have your normal eating pattern till after bub is here.

Sounds like a uti... You're pregnant, you can't be too careful. Call an after hours doctor or GP health line or even the maternity ward of your hospital. Just have a chat with a doctor, midwife or nurse and they'll tell you what you need to keep an eye on or whether they think you should come in or not.
Fingers crossed it's nothing. But the not full bladder peeing WITH back ache has bells ringing in my head.

The whole pee thing is normal - sometimes ur busting to go to the loo and only a tiny trickle comes out that's from ur uterus moving up out of ur pelvis.. And squashing ur bladder
And I think the pains are normal. I get them alot... Mine are kinda like period pains, but also just an achy feeling.. all round my lower abdomen and even my lower back and hips. I took DD to beach today, so walked around a bit, and now I feel awful, everything hurts and I just want a panadol and bed!!! I did suffer from pretty bad SPD in my first pregnancy, so I'm thinking that's a contributing factor, but it's also to do with ur muscles stretching etc
If ur worried, see ur OB or GP, but i think it sounds normal to me
