I am due Feb 21 and my back is hurting all the time. I make my husband give me a message like everyday but I still can't get any relief. I know back pain is normal and it isn't labor pains but does anyone have any advice on how to stop your back from hurting even for a little while???

Question: How is the baby positioned? When I was pregnant my bad hurt constantly and I had terrible back labor. The cause was that the babies back was against mine, when their back is supposed to be towards your stomach. There are simple exercises that can help the baby switch positions.

Next visit with your midwife or doctor you should ask how the baby is positioned.

Congrats, first off. I had terrible back pains the last 2 months of my pregnancy. The only way I could relieve it was to either have my hubby rub my back in the shower while the hot water was on it or lay on my left side with a pillow between my legs. My problem was that my daughter was sitting on my syatic nerve which made my back, hip, legs and foot hurt. It was the worst. You can look up pressure points in the foot that are suppose to help when rubbed. sounds wierd but my aunt suggested it and it kinda worked for me. Stay off your feet, that might help too.I hope you find some comfort soon!!

One thing that helped me was I would take a chair like a chair that you would have at a dinner table as long as it doesn't have arms on it. I would sit on it backwards. I would put a pillow on the back and I would be resting my arms and head on the back of the chair. I hope this makes sense it is hard to describe. I would watch tv sitting like that and it just was such a relief to my back and I tried everything.

I used to walk around with a heating pad tied to my back. I have 3 herniated disks in my lower back from an old work injury and I carried my son mostly pushing on my back. (my pelvis tips backwards) You can also take Tylenol for the pain...but I was one that didn't want to take anything I didn't have to, but my OB said it was safe to take. If I laid on the couch I would put pillows under my knees to help relieve pressure off my back, and between my knees and under my belly when I would sleep at night. When I would sit in chairs I would have a throw pillow at the base of my back as well. HOT showers worked as well beating right on my back. I used to stand there until the water went cold. Good luck with it!!

Try taking a really hot shower with the it hitting your back... this helps in two ways hot water can help the baby come sonner but it is a great way to relax all of your muscles... another thing would be to look for a message place that work with pregnet women. I went to some every two week for the last 6 weeks before my son was born and it was worth it.
