i'm on my 2nd pregnancy too and had backache with my first but its so much worse this time. It kicked in around 4 months like you. It unfortunately it has gotten worse as pregnancy progressed. Am 31 weeks now and signed off work because it involves being on my feet a lot and is physically demanding.. That doesnt necessarily mean it will happen this way for you but. just do regular gentle exercises/stretches., avoid lifting and bending as much as possible. None of this is easy when you have a lo to chase after i know!!
thats a long time to be dealing with a sore back. Mentioned it to the doctor when i was in yesterday, was just told "take paracetamol if it gets bad" but thats not what i wanted, i just wanted to know some reasons as to why its so sore so early on and ways to help it, so thanks for your tips
You poor thing, hope it eases for you soon!
I have back pains in the evening and I am putting it down to moving around during the day. My bump has grown so much in the past two weeks and my boobs are like sandbags so I feel tipped forward. I did find getting a good supportive bra fitted helped my posture and has alleviated some of the aches.
