  • back pain i would call your doctor asap it could be signs of labor or if not a kidney infection both are not good

  • You might just try some simple stretches, my doctor gave me a printout of safe stretches throughout pregnancy, one is on all fours arch your back slowly and then pull your head down, then reverse. Also walking works great to alleviate the pain, just short little spurts of walking helped me a LOT.

  • Bend over on a chair and see if it goes away, if it does it is just regular back pains and you can't do anything about that, it may not immediately go away but, it should within a minute or two. If it doesn't go away then it could be a kidney infection like a PP said.

  • you could try a heating pad and a warm bath that helps me sometimes and maybe have someone give you a massage
