  • Your baby could be laying on a nerve that hurts your back. Also, the pressure of your uterus on your spine could cause it to hurt. Try a heating pad or an ice pack and take some tylenol. I've dealt with back pain my entire pregnancy :(

  • I've started to have back pain too and I'm only 17 weeks! It's normal just miserable, I've been using a heating pad on my back and it works really well and is safe for the baby. Try it, it really is great.

  • I'm having a boy. At about 24 wks I had realllllly bad back pain. I would use an icepack on it for about 10 mins and try not to lay on that side. Luckily after about a week it went away. It was painful and hard to deal with cuz it was just my lfetside, lower back right about the hip area. I would mostly nap on a recliner and sleep semi-sitting up it was the most "confort" i could get out of it.
