I have had a lot of back/hip pain. My midwife said I could put 3-4 tennis balls in a tube sock and put them behind my back while I drive and also use them as a kind of massager. I also use a warm rice pack. There are also several exercises you can do to help loosen up the muscles.

That's because they are! I'm 36 weeks right now and there are days when I can't get out of bed. It brings tears to my eyes to sit up. If I'm hurting in the evening, I soak in a warm bath and relax. If I'm watching TV I use a heating pad on my lower back (lowest setting). At night I find sleeping propped up on three pillows allows me to actually get out of bed pain free, however, it isn't the most comfortable position in the world. Most nights I just sleep with my body pillow tucked around my back, between my legs and under my belly to support the weight of the baby. I'm still achy and sore in the morning but that's probably because I can't roll over and change position. You can try some Tylenol to ease the pain before you sleep, but personally Tylenol doesn't do anything for me...can't wait to get back to the days of Motrin and Excedrin Migraine. Good luck!
