upper back pain

any tips or advice? i am 34 weeks preg and i can't sit on the couch in the same position for more then 20 mins, i cant do chores or walk around the house for more than an hour. i try laying on my side (cant lay on my back then i feel short of breath) but i can only lay down for so long, there is still a 3 yr old to take care of, and a house to clean...so any tips? any sleeping ideas that would make it more bearable during the day?

  • I know what your talking about that kinda burning pain in your upper back right? Well the best remidy is a lotioned back massage , I always would pile up pillows under my chest and hipps so I could lay on my front without putting any pressure on my belly
