So I had my period at the beginning of March, about last Weds I noticed heavy & sticky discharge which I assumed was ovulation and my lower back started to ache pretty bad. The heavy discharge went away but the backache was still there, bad enough to keep me awake at night. It felt like I was on my period but I wasn't due for another 2 weeks. Then my tailbone started to hurt (I broke it with the birth of my last son and it has not hurt in a lonnng time). I went to urgent care that Friday because my back was aching and I was peeing more and had more of an urge to go. They didn't culture it but said there was trace blood in the urine and gave me antibiotics (which I hate taking). It's been 5 days and the antibiotics haven't really done anything. My lower back still aches and now my hips ache, I feel like I did when I was a few months pregnant with my son. I also have these slight pains in my uterine area or it could be my bladder, not sure. All I know is the back ache has not ceased for more than an hour at a time per day, my breasts are not tender but I am also breastfeeding my son still.
We weren't TTC but we don't use anything when I am on my period and I cannot remember if we were not careful this last time. So either my cycle is way screwed up, my period is coming early, I'm pregnant or it's something else. I don't know how common it is to have blood in your urine, I do know it is common with UTI's but they didn't really rule that out.
What I am wondering is if any of you ladies had similar symptoms when pregnant? a lower back ache so soon? It almost feels like I am on my period and I did not have this with my first pregnancy so soon! Curious to hear what you have to say because I am perplexed :D
