I am 6 wks pregnant and is having slight abdominal pain (seems to have subsided now) and low back pain. This has me very worried and concerned. This is my first pregnancy so I'm not sure if this is normal or if I should be concerned or not.?

If the pain is mild, stops with rest, and your not bleeding or feeling any other concerning symptoms than it's probably just growing pains. I had abdominal pain and low back pain in both my pregnancies and they told me it was just my muscles stretching with the growing uterus. Try laying down and rubbing the area that's hurting or take a lukewarm bath (not more than 10-15minutes at 6 weeks you still need to watch that your body doesn't overheat). Call your doctor and ask them about it just to be on the safe side.
