who here is having back pain? i am! i cant sit, stand or lay in the same position too long. last night, when i got up to pee through the night, i almost couldnt get out of bed. my back was so sore. i have been hobbling around like an 80 year old woman all day. its insane! baby must be laying a certain way or something? i just dont remember having this much pain with my first pregnancy. i have 6 weeks to go, hope i can survive. im glad my hubby is home more right now with christmas holidays. he is helping alot with chores and our daughter.

I am 32 1/2 weeks along and I get pressure and some pain low in my pelvis. I know this is because my son is riding low, he has for most of the pregnancy but now it get terribly uncomfortable at night. I have noticed my back hurts more now too, probably from the extra weight I am lugging around in the front. I have to use a body pillow to sleep and sometimes it doesn't help with the pain I feel in my back and legs. Getting out of bed is hard for me too! This is my first baby but I have sisters that have had kids so I know a lot of this is just normal and has to do with how the baby sits. I try not to over due it and when I get the pelvis pain I try to walk through it, it helps a little but most of the time I have to go lay down. Sitting can aggravate it more. I am going to try to get some stretching in to see if that helps and I am going to look into some massage as I have less then 8 weeks to go. Just know your not alone! I think the last few months are so uncomfortable because the baby runs out of room. Good luck!

I'm having some back problems but my entire right side of my body is killing me! My collar bone, my shoulder, my ribs, just the right side of my back! But my hips are killing me and I'm having the worst pelvic pressure! I feel like she is going to break my pelvis in half. I have to walk super show, take short steps which is all hard bc I have long legs and a large stride! Plus I can't have my legs too close together or too far apart. Everything makes it worst! She is extremely low and she is all in the right side going upward! I'm so exhausted and in so much pain...i want to be done. I can't sleep bc my hips hurt sleeping on them so I end up on my back and then I get stuck like that...bc it kills my back and my pelvis to move...I'm so glad I'm going to the dr tomorrow!

I am right there with ya hun. I have had horrible back pain as well as pelvic pain. I had problems with it my first pregnancy but not as bad. I don't know how much of mine is due to a back injury either
