You are here
It's most likely your joints and ligaments stretching to make room for baby, and widening of the hips to prepare for delivery. I'm having it as well, not terrible, but I know it's there. I had it with my first pregnancy too.
My back was hurting a lot when i had a UTI... and that was when i first got pregnant. Now that i have taken the meds... It doesn't hurt as bad... the only thing that kills me is my feet! cuz i'm standing on my feet for 8+ hours a day.
I feel your pain (literally)! I have a persistent lower back injury, and now that I'm pregnant, I can't take advil or muscle relaxers. The only other thing that helps me is yoga. If your doctor says it's okay, I recommend gentle yoga or pregnancy yoga classes. Once you get the hang of it, you can even use a video to do it at home to save money. Feel better! :)
