I'm 21 weeks pregnant and I've been experiencing lower back pain for about a week now. It feels similar to period cramps in my back and nothing expect lots and lots of rest seems to help. The pain has gotten so bad that I don't even want to move from bed.
Does this sound normal? I literally just had an ultrasound today and the tech said everything was looking splendid with our LO. I'm still feeling lots of movement, so I feel strongly that LO is OK. However, I don't know how much longer I can take this constant back pain. It's like having severe period cramps!
It could be a pulled muscle or where the baby is lying on a nerve. Maybe try a heating pad on Med setting and see if that helps. I have been going to a chiropractor during my pregnancy and that has helped a lot too. But just keep an eye on it, if it continues maybe call up the dr and see what they recommend.
