17 weeks pregnant

I' m 17 weeks pregnant but besides my bulging tummy and a stinging pain in my lower back i don' t have any sense of the health of my baby. Is it normal to feel this way, I am very paranoid of the health of my baby and don' t know what type of pain is normal and what pain not. Can you give me some guidence?

regards, Lizel

Back pain is very normal. Tummy pain or 'pullling tight' would be a cause for concern. You should start feeling movements soon, and this will reassure you.
