Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Try wearing a maternity support during the day.  It helps lift your belly and take the pressures off your back.  I'm 22 weeks and I've had mine for about 2 weeks now and it's helped tremendously!!!!!  I find my back pain is worse when I've been on my feet all day.  If I stay at my desk it's not as bad, but if I walk alot it's much worse.  Wearing the maternity support helps; I don't know if the back support helped so much - it seemed to make mine worse, but you might like it.  Also try using a wedge when you are sleeping.  I rotate mine from my tummy to my back and lean against it when I'm sleeping - this seems to help a lot!!!  Good luck!  :)
