Congrats! It can be an exciting and scary time, especially during early pregnancy when you really don't know what is going on.
Some aches and pains (many, in fact!) are normal, and others aren't. What kinds are you having?
Cramping is very normal in early pregnancy, and with your second, third, etc, it gets worse, because your uterus stretches more quickly, since it "knows what it's doing," so to speak. XD
Every pregnancy is different, too. If you're having aches/pains that you didn't have last time, sometimes our body just reacts differently...to the same hormones.... Yeah, I don't really get it, either, but I'm an example - with my first two, I had little to no nausea - one was a girl and the other a boy. With my last three (baby, m/c, currently pg) I've had a lot of nausea, and baby #3 was a girl. So it didn't even vary based on gender...it varied just...because.
So odds are pretty good that everything is normal for you! If you get really concerned, though, give your doctor a call. Maybe you can talk to them, or to a nurse, who can set your mind at ease!
