Lower back pain with baby #2

hi! i recently found out i am expecting baby #2. i have been having some lower back pain (feel like pinched nerves). I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and/or if anyone has hear that this could be a side effect from using an epidural with first baby?

  • Pregnancies seem to progressively get more uncomfortable as your joints/muscles are much looser and tend to start preparing for the baby sooner than with your first. I would invest in a good maternity belt they make a WORLD of difference.

  • I had back pain w/ both, I also had a siatic nerve that bothered me all the time. I would agree with the other mom, a belt.
