I know your not doctors but maybe u can give me ideas

Well since vince was born my back has been killing me. Yes i had back labor with him and all through his pregnancy he was towards my back. I saw a chiropracter and he told me my pelvic bone shifted causing pressure on my lower back at that time.

Well now i lift laundry baskets up and downstairs all day, i have vince attached to me when i walk sometimes to get haiden from school or just to clean if he is fussy, sometimes i am carrying logan up the stairs who is 34lbs. I am cleaning and washing floors on my hands and knees, cooking meals, brings groceries in.
Well i noticed when i laid on my back flat it hurt so bad. I rocked back and forth to see if it would loosen up but it hurt. When i do sit ups it hurts.
And just now my lower back hurts to the touch, like it feels like my lower back is swollen.
I am a 4ft 11inch women, who is only 130lbs.
With it i am just in pain no fevers or anything like that.

      Try heat pad, ibuprofen and rest, ease into stretches lay on your stomach for awhile on floor with your baby, I do tummy time with my daughter to stretch out my back.

        I don't know if anyone that doesn't have back pain can really understand how badly back pain hurts or can effect your day, mood, life style, etc..

        I don't know what happened, but after I had my last baby.. My back got rocked too.. I had a toddler and a kinder.. and same as you, was cleaning and laundry and bending and picking up kids constantly.. I also could NOT sleep, which didn't help..

        I don't believe in chiropractors.. but I finally went to a pain management Doctor and was given cortisone shots for inflammation and I got the thermal care heating pads and epsom salt baths and when it was really bad, I took RX pain medication... Which at first, I thought UGH.. I don't want to take a narcotic.. but then when I DID.. it was life changing.. the pain was never gone.. it was easier to manage, I was in a better mood, I could get things done, I was nicer, warmer, less irritable from pain..

        When I was in bad pain, just picking up a toy from the ground was exhausting and painful..So, if you have any insurance, I'd look into that.. then stretch a LOT... exercise.. get your core in shape and there are non narcotic pain meds that they can prescribe too..

        Don't feel bad.. being a mom is top priority..
