Early pregnancy stomach and back pains. Any tips?

It’s very normal to feel discomfort in early pregnancy, everything is changing and expanding! Early on in my pregnancy it felt almost like period cramps and it was uncomfortable.

A warm (not too hot) bath can really help to relax muscles, as well as a hot water bottle or heat pad - I used a plug-in heat pad and found that sitting in the evening with that against my back really helped! If you find the discomfort is too much, paracetamol is safe to take during pregnancy and should take the edge off!

Best of luck.
