    Hello ladies !

    I'm currently 15 weeks pregnant and work a job where I'm on my feet a lot! I swim for half an hour to an hour almost every day and walk my dogs. I was also in good shape prior to becoming pregnant. My problem is just my back. It's tight all the time and just seems "tired" with no real comfort to find. Is that normal so early on? If so, is there anything I can do about it?

    Thank you so much in advance :)

    Take paracetamol and get your midwife or GP to refer you to physio, I work on my feet and it troubled me a lot. But physio helped x

    I wake up with a horrible backache at the moment. I don't know if it's my mattress but it stays with me all day to xxx

    I found sleeping in a different position made things worse, I'm a tummy sleeper and my husband ended going out buying memory foam mattress topper and a pillow for me as it made everything ache to be on my side. X

    I found that the memory foam stuff plus a pregnancy pillow really helped until I got too big to fit a cushion under my bump lol x

    Lower back pain will come and go throughout the journey I'm afraid - not too early. A pregnancy pillow definitely helped me. Physio can help too although I was told I.couldnt have it on the NHS as waiting list length would be after due date. xx

    That's a bit harsh of them, my physio basically told me to get a ball and sit on it and do gentle rocking back and forth, and side to side x

    Hey
    I had back ache bad during the 2nd tri more so than in my third tri and got referred to the physio. Didn't really do much except give me a support belt to wear when walking or sleeping but sleeping with a pregnancy pillow does help. It won't be forever :)
