    I suffered terrible backache with my other pregnancies - and its started again now but earlier than usual :hissy:

    I can't beleive for the next 4 months I have to be in terrible pain!

    Has anybody got any good remedies (apart from hubby massaging every night cos he does anyway!)

    Its always the top half of my back (where bra straps are) but I have been measured and in the right maternity bras.

    ANy help appreciated

    From a desperate mummy to be (again!)

    I've been seeing a chiropractor as i've had neck pain and sciatica. It really helps, and he keeps telling me how many women they treat during pregnancy, as your whole body realigns itself when you're pregnant, which can have all sorts of knock on effects with your spine etc.

    Def worth finding one and giving it try. OR a good pregnancy massage?? (give the OH a day off!)

    I know how you feel. I have SPD this time round and at night it can be really painful. Paracetamol helped me the other night.

    Sounds like sciatica. Mine used to feel like a toothache type pain shooting down my leg.

    My pregnancy yoga video has some good exercises that help me. That and careful attention to posture, I think it's easy to put you back out of whack sticking your bump out but everything is loosening up so it's hard to stay totally pain free :(
