    URGH

    after standing up for four hours at work my back starts to kill, it also hurts when i walk.
    feels like my hips hurt too.

    im guessing this is normal but i've always been a bit prone to back ache (as im quite tall)



    anyone else experiencing this? or had any info regarding why my back is hurting? xxx

    Yep, I'm in agony today. Not even my back, but my muscles at the top of my thighs as well, which I'm assuming is tiredness from lugging about my big belly :)

    swimming, baths, lying down are alllll good. I'm trying the last one at the minute!

    I suffered from bad back pain just over a year ago which stopped me from working in care, they never 100% knew what it was but had calmed down alot. But......... these past 3weeks I have been getting ALL the bad back feelings again and its horrible, I havent got much of a bump to carry around either and its really starting to bother me.

    When you lay down though try putting a pillow between you legs or under you knees if on back this holds off some of the pressure on your back.

    Im going to talk to the midwife about it next week when I see her and see if there is anything else she can advise........... I will let you know. :hugs: xxxx

    thanks hancake thats really helpful, i see my midwife in five weeks and i dont really think this back pain is anything to bother her with as i suffered from aches and pains before.

    ah well, just a joy of pregnancy no doubt :)

    i do hope my little girl is enjoying it in there because im in pain! haha x
