    He he he, Naomi, I am glad you feel at ease about the backache now too I guess it is normal!....The calve pain I dont have....Is it aching or pain? Either way hun, I would talk to your Doc about that one, just to put your mind at ease.

    Hi Girls
    Back pain is normal and very common.
    Naomi
    If the pain in your calf is a sharp stabbing pain and is more painful when you bend your foot up then you should get it checked out. Another thing to check is if your calf is hot where the pain is.

    I had backpain early on in this pregnancy... I freaked out thinking it was only going to get worse from there. But, I havent had anything since. Only yesterday my hips started to hurt when I was going to sleep. Nothing too bad atm though.

    Just try and keep active as much as you can, even just going for a walk, cause it will only get worse as your pregnancy progresses (well mine did anyway) A hot shower always helped me ... that would explain the $200 gas bill for 2 months!!!
