I've, also. been getting backaches. I normally get them when I'm sleeping, but I have them other times, too. I think it's because of the relaxation of our muscles during pregnancy-maybe our back muscles have to work extra hard to support us??? I've read that backaches during this time in pregnancy are normal. Hopefully, it won't last long. If they get severe, I would address it with your doctor. Good luck and I hope we both feel better soon!

i am 26 weeks today and i've been having horrible back aches for weeks, i went to walmart and spent like $12 on a lombar back support by dr. scholls for when i'm sitting all day at work and in the car it really helps. good luck to you

I have sciatica (spinal disc out of place, irritates the sciatic nerve & causes painful muscles spasms) even when I'm not preg, and thankfully so far I haven't been debilitated during this because of it. I'm also 18 weeks along, and have experienced a bit of pain from my pelvic bones getting soft & spreading from relaxin. Otherwise, I'm good. I think I must be one of the only women who ahead of time dreads getting a big belly because it'd probably put me out for the count.

Yep, mine hurts too. I am 22 weeks and it has for a lot of my pregnancy. On and off, sitting, sleeping; basically anything I do for long periods makes it act up. I got a body pillow which is WONDERFUL for sleeping at night (big U shaped kind) and lumbar support for long work meetings or car rides. Both help a lot.

I am 23 weeks and I have been having horrible back pains since day 1.... I tend to have spasms too if I stand for a long time and then go to lay down... hurts... I use a heating pad... I was told by my doctor that it was okay as long as I dont put it on my stomache!!!
