im 36/37 weeks and let me tell u girl it does not get better it gets worse :/ I cry at night, but one of the gals told me to sleep on my left side with a pillow between my legs and that seemed to help at night, you could also take a bath.

I have had sciatic nerve and back issues on and off this whole pregnancy, lucky for me my SIL is a physical therapist. Anyway, the thing I found that helps the most is what they call moist heat pads. You can just purchase one(she just sent it to me, so I have no idea where she got it from) but it's really just a bag filled with beads that you heat up in the microwave for a few minutes--apply and it has moisture in it. I am pretty sure you can make one too--if you wanna sew=) I believe you just fill it with rice or beans to hold the heat in. Here is a link for a DIY with a tube sock if you want to try it out before purchasing or spending a bunch of time making one.

Lower Back Pain


Break out that bag of frozen peas (or an ice pack, if you want to get fancy) for the first 48 hours after the pain sets in, and put it to use for 20 minutes a session, several sessions per day. After those two days are behind you, switch to 20-minute intervals with a heating pad. Localized cooling shuts down capillaries and reduces blood flow to the area, which helps ease the swelling Heat, on the other hand, loosens tight muscles and increases circulation, bringing extra oxygen to the rescue.

So sorry everyone is suffering from back pain, its terrible! I had pretty bad ones end of 1st trimester and some part of 2nd tri.
Here are things I found useful for me:
1. Hot/warm bath with 2-3 drops of lavender essential oil (instant relief for me)
2. Prenatal Yoga. I have been doing prenatal yoga 2-3 times per week, and back pain didnt bother me since I started at 22 weeks.

Hope it gets better for you ladies xxxx

You’re not alone!!!! I’m having pain in my back too.
I started trying the heat pad today and that gave some relief.
I also took a hot shower and sat on a stool cause I’m just so exhausted. Sleep has been awful for me, i try tons of positions with pillows and nothing works

I like PP idea to try pregnancy yoga. I did that last pregnancy but been so tired this time around. It’ll be worth a shot though.
