Hi mommas! I am 5 weeks along with my second baby and this time around I have had very bad lower back pains for the last 4 or 5 days. When I go from the sitting to standing position, my lower abdominal area cramps really badly, so that it makes it hard to straighten up. Is this normal...has anyone had this before? For some reason I am very nervous about miscarrying this time around, though I have never had any issues before and my first pregnancy was a breeze! Any thoughts would be appreciated!!!

Sadly, this baby of ours was not meant to be. The pain continued, and light spotting followed a week later. Mid June, we lost our baby. It was....well, for anyone who has experienced such a loss, there aren't really words.
We got through it, slowly...(me much slower than anyone else). But we survived, together ♥

Every pregnancy is different. My first was much easier than my second. That said, mother's intuition is a powerful thing. If it's scaring you, call your doctor.
