Also, this is my first pregnancy.. and I'm so nervous. My back only bothers me when i'm at work when i'm standing up (the whole time i'm at work). Should I continue working or should I quit my job?

I had this same problem when i was about 12 weeks, and this is my first child also. My doc told me to take extra strength tylenol for the back pain and then did a urine check because of the stomach pain. Turns out i had my first urinary tract infection, he said its very common with pregnancy. You should ask ur doc to check for it. He also said some of the cause of my cramping was due to the uterus stretching.hope this was helpful :)shay
