Achy
So i'  m 9 weeks 3 days. i'  ve got this weird pain in my lower back and towards to front by my uterus. it'  s not terribly painful it'  s just achy. Sometimes a bit like period pains. I used to get it on and off right in the beginning but now it'  s kinda hanging around. also sometimes feels like i suddenly need to poo but when i go there is no poo. (sorry TMI) it goes down my back into my bum cheeks. Is this normal?? is this really the growing uterus? my boobs are still really sore and i have most of all my symptoms so i'  m not worried (i think) that there is anything wrong with the baby.

Constipation can certainly cause this.
