    Hi all,
    My back and ribs are in bits at the moment. I sat in the bathroom sobbing last night as the pain in my back just wouldn't go away. I've got a small frame and I've never put weight on in my life until now (put on over 2 stone), so it must be the strain. I just can't seem to relieve it and its stopping me sleeping. It actually knocked me sick last night, it was so painful. Anyone else have similar? Any hints/tips? X

    I suffered with pains like that and eventually couldnt lie on any side apart from my right, try some pillows under your bump and even at the back like a wedge and one between your knees hopefully is should help. I really suffered towards the end and was awake every few hours but as soon as she arrived a- it went away and b- its like training for sleepless nights ahead :) Hope its gets better soon XXX

    My chiropractor is a living god lol, the changes in posture and the spd have been very painful but he's keeping it under control. I've got a small frame and have put on over 2 stone as well and it can be agony. There are lots of places to get a pregnancy massage, usually sports therapists and people like that can help too. Failing that get the baby oil out and get your OH massaging your back.....it's entirely his fault anyway!

    Hope you get some relief soon hunny, totally understand xxxxxxxxx

    thats too true, i find a bath helps, i love my baths hot with radox bath salts in them but been told not to have them too hot! lol i also find lying across my ball helps relieve the pressure, kneel on the floor and basically lie on the ball, helps to stretch my back out,
