    Sore muscles normal in early pregnancy?

    I am 5 weeks 4 days and I have all the typicla symptoms of fatigue, sore boobs and the feeling that I want to eat everything in sight! Lately I have been noticing that my legs, arms, stomach, you name is sore! I feel like I a ran a marathon! I know I don't have the flu so is this normal? Even when my DH huggs me, my whole body is sore :-( It's a little scary :-(

    I think everyone experiences different symptoms w/different intensities. Believe me, fatigue and soreness are NOT unheard of! I would say that in the beginning of my pregnancy it was more fatigue and now, towards the middle/end there's more soreness.

    I was very sore in the beginning and horrible fatigue. Soreness went away for while but is coming back here and there. My fatigue goes up and down but I am working a lot right now.

    Good luck.

    Normal. Your whole body will ache sometimes. Even though the fetus is small, you still have stretching and hormones that your body isn't used to.

    I had cramp like pains early in pregnancy also. The doc said that is normal.
