  • I have had an already large chest before pregnancy, so with them increasing in size, my upper back was severly hurting. I almost cried a few days because the pain was so bad. I took another friends advice and got a massage done by a prenatal specialist and it surprisingly helped a ton. I was only 18 weeks when I had it done, but I plan on going back for more throughout my pregnancy. I'm not sure how far along you can get them done, but I would think you would be fine at 33 wks. I had to get it okay'd with my dr, but they said it was not a problem. I know alot of pregnant women who have had had massages. Good Luck.

  • How far along are you? I have kind of a small build, so my back and stomach started to hurt around 5 months. She puts a lot of pressure on my nerves, that's why my back hurts...and then wth the stomach it's just from the way she's carrying. Maybe it's the same for you?
