  • I laid down and then put my feet up and used a heating pad. It felt so good.

  • You can buy one of those inflatable swimming rings, inflate it halfway, and lay down on it with your tummy in the middle. Sounds funny but it works. You can also have your hubby try to use counter- pressure on your back by rubbing a tennis ball around and around. You can fill a tube sock with uncooked white rice coated with essential oils (lavender is a great one),  microwave until warm, and rest with that against your back (rice sock kicks ass!). Another thing that helped me out was sitting on an exercise ball and sleeping with a pillow between my knees. I hope you get to feeling better soon!
