Pregnancy Back Pain & Other Pregnancy Changes | Cleveland Clinic
Everyone knows labor and delivery is painful, but what about the rest of pregnancy? Here, a list of the most common pregnancy-related aches and pains, why they happen and — thankfully — what you can do about them. Back pain — either lower or upper, between your shoulder blades — typically appears during the second trimester and is a result of your growing uterus. Your sciatic nerve runs from your lower spine through both sides of your hips and buttocks, then down your legs to your feet. Some people feel a shooting pain, while others experience numbness or tingling.
Abdominal Pain During Pregnancy: Is It Gas Pain or Something Else?
Back to Your pregnancy and baby guide. Stomach abdominal pains or cramps are common in pregnancy. They're usually nothing to worry about, but they can sometimes be a sign of something more serious that needs to be checked.

But if you have stomach pains and are worried, call your midwife or maternity hospital.
