I am 32 weeks and for the last few months have had aching in the same spot of my upper left back. Seems like an odd place to have aches, but I do. I was wondering if anyone else experienced this and what helped. I don't know if it is my big belly giving me bad posture or what. Any advice??

Kind of.....Laying down always makes it go away and I don't get it until I have been up and around a lot. It's like a sore muscle kind of feeling.

I had that when I was about 20 weeks preggy...I was terrified because it was a "one sided" pain and supposedly that's not a good thing...I talked to my Dr. About it and it is due to different muscles stretching to accomidate your growing belly...Pretty soon the other side will ache or maybe both at the same time...

You should have nothing to worry about...If it is unbearable than call your Dr....He/she can tell you what to do to relieve your pain!

Good luck!!

I have the back pain. I am 33weeks. But I have it in my upper and lower back. I went to the hospital last night and they told me that is was normal. Lower pain from the head and the upper pain from the weight that I am carrying. Though I think my upper pain is from being sick I have strep throat...I hope you feel better. When is your due date? Mine is april 5th with a boy but will probably have him b4 that. I cant wait either...All the pain is making me hateful. Goodluck with everything.

No nothing bad just that I get the same problem (i'm 31 wks pg) and it seems to get worse with bad posture and your right, laying down does help I also found that mild pain killers help when it gets really bad. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy.
