    Im looking for some advice ladies. I am 24 +5, ive not suffered with back ache or anything through so far. However i stood up to cook dinner earlier and was greeted with really bad back ache. It is coming and going in waves of strength but very sore. No matter how i sit/stand it is hurting. Any ideas why this has suddenly come on or how to relieve the pain?
    Thanks in advance

    I get back aches from walking or sitting. I have to lay on my side with a pillow between my legs. It brings some relief.

    Ive been getting a really stiff back since hitting 20 weeks

    If i clean the house, or stand around in the same spot for a long time, or if i lay in bed and get up without enough sleep, i get such a stiff back it really hurts and goes all down the back off my legs up the top, ive even had to be carried to the sofa or helped to the toilet when it happens, i loose control off my legs and balance and the backache is awful i have to sit down for abit till it goes!

    hi hun

    i have been suffering with back pain for few years now due to a car accident! always gets worse during pregnancy and i cannot/ will not take medication to control it! u can use heat rub but u need to use it sparingly hun and check the packaging to make sure it is safe! if you feel worse in the nxt few days then you could hure/buy/borrow a tens machine! it helps a lot and quite easy to use

    hope this helps xx
