Hi im 20 wks and experiencing extreme lower back pain where I am really struggling to stand up from seating position. I cant remember any of my previous pregnancies being so early with the onset of pain here. I did have  crutches with my last but not until late on..

I was just Googling this for another lady.
On WebMD it suggests ice/heat, improving your posture, chiropractor (who specializes in pregnant ladies) and acupressure.
Some ladies the BioFreeze, but BenGay and IcyHot are off limits.
Also putting a pillow between your knees when you lay down helps.
I hope that helped in some way. Good luck.
