Hi Kay...I have had backaches too...very common in pregnancy...here is some additional info I found for you...Don't worry :) Abdominal and Low Back Pain As your uterus and abdomen expands, you might feel pains in your abdomen, groin area or thighs. You may feel backaches due to your increasing weight. You’ll also experiencing aching near your pelvic bone from the pressure of the baby's head, your increased weight and the loosening joints in these areas. The lower abdomen may ache as ligaments stretch to support the uterus. Lying down, resting or applying heat can help resolve some of these aches and pains. Also, wearing a support girdle can help relieve your back pain while offering your stomach some support. If pains do not get better after rest, it is best to call your chiropractor or other health care provider

 

More info... - April 1

Backache is very common in pregnancy. Half of all pregnant women can expect some back pain. Your ligaments will become softer and stretch to prepare you for labor. As the baby grows, the hollow in your back may increase and this may cause you backache. Also, due to the increased weight, the muscles in your back may have to work harder to support your balance, resulting in increased lower back pain. About half of all pregnant women complain of backaches.
