Im really sorry to tell you this but... Back aches are one of the many pleasures of pregnancy! Even when I was in the early stages of my pregnancy my back hurt so bad! My advice is to get an excersize ball and lay on it and roll. Take a hot bath, have hubby rub it or bengay works really well.

Back ache is your body's way of moving your hips and birthing area around so that when it comes time for the baby to be born and also durring normal growth in the womb things shift to make room and so you are going to continue to have back ache until the birth (most likly) after birth the body will release a hormone called relaxin and all of your connective tissue/tendons will relax and you will actually be very free from pain for a while.

Be prepared to grow at least one full shoe size after birth, your feel will be a part of the wonders of relaxin.

Good luck and dont be afraid to take tylenol for help!

Thanx..Both of you. Im not sooo worried now..I was so scared..Right now im just laying on my bed watchin lifetime :) I love that channel..Hehe

i even asked my mom "should I go to the doc mom" and she said no and that she had back aches and the most I could probably do is lay down sideways on the bed and put an ice pack on my lower back and take tylonel but if I have spotting then go to the doc but im not spotting, thank god....Thanx again sooo much for the reply u two, I really appreciate it :)
