Has anyone ever had lower back pain in their second trimester?

My back has been killing me for a few weeks and I am only in my 19th week. My mom thinks this is not normal, has anyone else ever experienced this?

  • I've had it since day 1 before I even knew I was pregnant. Mine migrates back and forth from lower back to my tailbone. My doctor says Tylenol and a warm bath, so helpful. ;)
    I've been doing these back exercises and they seem to help. It doesn't totally alleviate it, but any help is good.
    Be careful and only do them as you are able.

  • if its right side lower it could be kidney infection to be safe i would have a urin test. i had kidney infection in my second trimester. hurts bad when laying down and trying to sleep. would wake me when i turned in sleep . can be bad if you leave it unattended.
