That's great news! I'm so happy for you and great that bub is doing well. Rest up and don't do too much :-)
yay....glad to hear your heard the hb and everything is ok....my back pain lasted about 2 weeks and i think it was because my uterus was ascending towards my belly and putting pressure on muscles in my back....im no doctor but the pain did go away and i have been fine since
my next u/s is in 13 days....i cant wait to see my babies again
OK, so it seems I was freaking out over nothing. My doctor sent me for an ultrasound and everything looks great. We saw a strong hb (171) and even saw little movements! I am so relieved. Also, the back pain has subsided pretty much. I guess I will worry for a while yet :)
Well, I did the Tylenol and ice last night and it really didn't work. I slept with a pillow between my legs last night and that seemed to help. I woke up with very little pain, but it has since come back. I called the doctor and they seem to think I strained my back or something. I know I shouldn't worry so much but I can't seem to help it. They are supposed to call back in a bit with more instructions, so hopefully, I can get some reassurance.
I also have had back pain during this pregnancy, but last pregnancy it was similar to what you described and at times very piercing pain. I went to a chiropactor who specialised in pregnancy and it did really help me alot (that was in my case). In addition, I have had constant cramping which is scary as some days it's more intense than others. It's hard not to worry when you have such symptoms.
Alot of women suffer from back pain during pregnancy. Have you tried to do some pelvic tilts? Another thing you could do is to wear flat heeled shoes, and get enough rest. Lower back exercises like pelvic tilts help strengthen the back and reduce back pain.
Hope it gets better :-)
i also have had a lot of back pain with my preg....i have been worried about it as well but everytime i go to the bathroom and dont see red or pink i take a breath...it is so hard not to worry, especially when there is pain that shouldnt be
i figured i would have a lot more back pain because i have 2 babies growing inside my belly....i think the pain you feel is your uterus ascending towards your belly
