  • Take it easy, try to rest in the most comfortable ways possible and possibly use a body pillow or extra pillows as support. I've got 15 more weeks to go, I'll be 25 weeks tomorrow. I wish you the best labor :)

  • Go see a chiropractor! I went once a week at the end of my pregnancy and he was a life saver!

  • By take it easy does that mean i am doing too much. I take my 5 year old to school everyday on the bus, walk everyday, cook, clean and do my homework because i have 3 online classes and 9 units this semester. If i contiue all these things, am i not resting enough and thats why the pain is so severe?? My back has hurted since i was 4 months, but now the pain is gettign worse.

  • I think that stress may be causing some of these issues. Pain is inevitable towards the end of your pregnancy. I remember my back and feet hurting so bad I could barely walk through the grocery store. Its just the weight of the baby pressing down on you. Just try to relax and take it easy.
