I believe I am around 4weeks and spotting, I also have lower back pain but feel fine in the abdominal region. I went to the ER and had blood work done. HcG level is at 50 and I was told that by a number that low I may only be 1-2 weeks along, In any case I am going back next week for a follow up. My HcG level will be tested again and if it appears to be rising appropriately then I am told to not worry, but if it isn't I'm likely to have a miscarriage.

I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I've experienced a very early miscarriage as well. I was lucky to have a really good support system. Pregnancy and motherhood is so complex. Best wishes for the future.

I had a miscarriage. This was my third pregnancy and first miscarriage. These things happen. I hope for better luck next time.

Spotting is completely normal. I typically knew about my pregnancy really early on as well and experience lower back pain with this (my 2nd) pregnancy from the 1st week I was pregnant until now (and I only have four more months to go). Put your feet up and relax as much as possible. Don't wear clothing that is tight or restrictive on your abdomen. Make and go to those prenatal appointments. I wouldn't worry too much about the pains, especially if pregnancy is a new experience for you.
