has anyone else had ridiculous mid to lower back pains while pregnant? mine appeared the week i went from 'bloated' to 'finally looking pregnant'. the new weight seems to have thrown my back off alignment or something and it is so painful. it hurts when i sit, stand and i don't sleep well at all.
on regular basis i am doing the following: pregnancy yoga, swimming, sitting in my massage chair w/the heat setting on, stretching, pushups, trying to sleep with an array of pillows placed this way and that, to no avail. oh, and ben gay, which i have just been told to replace with tiger balm which is more natural.
i am going to see a guy tomorrow who has helped me in the past, but it's never been this bad before, nor have i been pregnant before.
any suggestions? am i doomed for 5 more months?
