Is it normal for my whole body to ache at only 5 weeks pregnant?

Yes: The hormones of pregnancy can be brutal on a woman's body. And it's normal to have this all over body ache especially in the first trimester. Typically the symptoms are going to get better as the first trimester progresses. But a lot of women complain of this aching sensation in addition to extreme fatigue in the first trimester you're completely normal.

Normal: The only real rule regarding symptoms of early pregnancy is there are no rules. Some people have a lot of issues while others only know they are pregnant because they skipped a period.

I find fatigue, feeling tired, is the most common early symptom in pregnant women.
