It can be really difficult to distinguish between normal discomforts of pregnancy (who doesn’t have back pain when pregnant?!) and warning signs (if you have back pain call your provider!).
So, if you feel confused, or if something that once felt normal feels a little bit different, call your provider and ask all the questions. It’s best to get their input and advice-- you don’t need to figure it out on your own! Even midwives need help figuring out what’s going on sometimes!
