In brief: Pregnancy/back pain

Back pain is common with pregnancy.
There is a rapid and significant change in hormones in the first trimester that can lead to changes in the tension or laxity of the muscles and tendons of the pelvis. Check with your obstetrician for reassurance that you are not having a miscarriage.
