Re: My back pain is making me cry

Going to the chiro definitely helped me. I went last week and am headed back tomorrow. I was having a sharp "pinched" feeling along my spine. She fixed that right up. I still have that nasty achy "I'm carrying a bowling ball in my belly" feeling by the end of the day, but it's not nearly as bad. Maybe it will just take a few sessions before you see substantial improvement?

Re: My back pain is making me cry

It sounds like your sciatic nerve is being squashed by baby. I sewed a rice heating pack (kind of like the sock, but 7"x14" with a cute cover) and it has been my lifesaver. Alternate heat (heating pad is good for this too) and a few minutes of cold just to help with circulation. Also what helps me is a warm bath- I seriously take 1 a day (and refill to reheat the water twice) and it helps immensely. Hang in there, I hope you get some relief soon!

Chiro is a lifesaver as your joints start shifting. But please be careful of applying direct heat anywhere on your torso. Both my Chiro and my doc have said that it's not recommended when pregnant. Don't want to increase baby's core temp too much or too quickly.

Thanks ladies. I have a rice sock, its a lifesaver. I slept with a body pillow last night and only on my left side since my right was the more painful. Now my entire lower back feels like one big bruise. No position is comfortable anymore, except maybe on my hands and knees.

I see my OB on Wednesday and I'll ask her about a chiropractor. Or the possibility of finding a way to sleep through the next 4 months.
