  • Yes you can use a heating pad on your back....I always took a warm bath, the water pressure seemed to help with the back pains. I had a sore back my whole pregnancy with my daughter.

  • If you have it for a few hours call the doctor! Better to be safe!

  • Whenever I was pregnant with my son I had terrible back pain because I gained so much and I'm not a very big person. The thing that seemed to help me the most was sitting on my knees and bending over the couch and rocking my hips from side to side.
