  • Try the exercise ball but be careful you don't fall. Sit on it and just rock side by side and front and back. This helped me a lot. Also ask the doctor if they allow you to go swimming. I went swimming to release the pressure on my back and front. gravity is the worst enemy for pregnancy, lol. good luck with the baby

  • ya the ball and swimming do miracles! seriously! maybe try getting on all fours and tilting your pelvis back and forth (like you're humping something) and do it slowly, but it will help align the baby and take the pressure off your back

  • I would recommend seeing a chiropractor in your area. I work for one who treats MANY pregnant women. Look for one in your area who specializes in pregnancy and pediatrics. You'll be very glad you did! I'm in Illinois near St. Louis. Let me know if you're at all close to this area and I'll give you his info.

  • Try this for the lower back pain...get on your knees on the floor, then stretch your arms out in front of you so your face is on the floor and your bottom is seems to make the baby move up some and relive some pressure.
