    Hi ladies,
    I am new to the 2nd tri! I am just wondering if back pain is normal at 15 weeks. It comes and goes but mainly at night I wake up with a sore back. Is this common and is there anything to do for it?? I imagine it will be worse as I get bigger so I'd like to find a way to manage it now to cope better later.

    Are you lying on your side or on your back? If you are lying on your side, try putting a pillow of cushion between your knees. I personally don't have backaches but really bad hip aches which are somewhat better since I got a pregnancy pillow. Sorry I cannot help you more. Hope you feel better soon xxx

    Oh and welcome to the second tri! :D

    I will try that idea with the pillow. I switch between back and right side, trying to start sleeping just on left side but its hard!!

    I've had back ache for weeks and I definately find it's worse at night. It doesn't seem to matter whether I lie on my side or my back. I haven't found a way to make it better yet so having to lump it.xox
