    Hi all I'm 33 weeks pregnant and for the past 2 days I've had constant lower back and bum ache, it's that painful that sometimes I can't walk I'm struggling to find myself in a comfy position any ideas on what i should do? Xx

    i know exactly how you feel, and it sucks big time. I am in a very similar position to you and mentioned it to my midwife during my appointment today. she has suggested I make an appointment with the doctor as they can prescribe codine for use during pregnancy. she has also referred to to a physio as she thinks it may be related to SPD and sciatic pain. Apparently the physio can supply not only exercises/stretches etc, but also a support belt and if necessary crutches. Not the way I wanted to end my pregnancy, but I am taking the maximum dose allowed of paracetamol...also, a little hint, try not to sit too long on soft seats as this can make it worse...im sat at the dining room table :(. hope you feel better soon

    My lower back is starting to ache constantly now. I think its partly my posture, partly the fact that I'm probably overdoing it (trying to force myself to get that nesting instinct, but lets face it girls, its still just bloody housework!) and partly just having a big old baby belly.

    I have SPD and that's what it feels like. My body feels like an 80 year old not someone in their 20s. I haven't found anything to ease it but I've had it for majority of pregnancy, hopefully you'll be luckier :)

    It could be spd or it could be sciatica. If you google sciatica they might have some tips on a bit of relief?
