I started having extreme lower back pain a few hours ago. I'm cramping some but it's nothing major. No bleeding. I'm very tired. Not sure if maybe I have overdone myself or if I should be worried?! I am 12 weeks pregnant. Please help!

What is that? I would love to take a nap but my 3 year old is not going to let me. Maybe he will have an early bedtime!

is it acetaminophen?
It's a mild analgesic and reduces pain.

I would just try laying on the lounge drinking some water and resting for the rest of the afternoon.
Put the Tv on a movie on for your little one and just rest.
You could allways call you health provider?
I am sorry for confusing you Australian term and names are a little different then US terms.
We call it panadol<< which is the known brand of aceteminophen, the generic brand is paracetamol.
