  • Hmm does the pain by any chance shoot down your leg at all? If so, it could be sciatica.

  • OUCH!!! I would say not preggo related. Call your family doc to check it out...or a good chiroprator. hope ya feel better soon!

  • That happened to me all the time when I was pregnant and the dr told me that it's my body moving around inside to make room for the baby. I thought he was a quack. If the pain is really bad in your back you might want to try staying off your feet for a while. It could be your doing too much. I hope this helps
