Hey there! Congratulations to you!! I've had the same issue with both my pregnancies, so I know how uncomfortable it is! I was surprised at how early it started! However, with my current pregnancy (I'm 9wks now, but found out at like 3-4wks- very early), my backache started almost immediately. Come to find out, I had a Urinary Track Infection (UTI) and my Dr had to put me on a round of antibiotics. It's a simple test that they can detect with a urine test, so you might want to go ahead & call your Dr bc if left untreated it can cause bigger issues. Other than that, you can only take Tylenol for pain (no Advil, Motrin or Ibuprofen). I'd def call your Dr's office and mention it bc it ocould be a UTI and those suck Congrats again & feel better!
