Abdominal and Low Back Pain during pregnancy

As your uterus and abdomen expands, you might feel pains in your abdomen, groin area or thighs. You may feel backaches due to your increasing weight. You'll also experiencing aching near your pelvic bone from the pressure of the baby's head, your increased weight and the loosening joints in these areas. The lower abdomen may ache as ligaments stretch to support the uterus. Lying down, resting or applying heat can help resolve some of these aches and pains. Also, wearing a support girdle can help relieve your back pain while offering your stomach some support. If pains do not get better after rest, it is best to call your chiropractor or other health care provider.

    Ugh! I had horrible back pain when I was in my 2nd trimester. I had to go to physical therapy until I gave birth! I could barely walk.

      Great info! I even started to feel weird stomach pressure/pain in the first trimester. I wonder if having cysts and a tilted uterus had anything to do with it.

        My back really bothered me in my last pregnancy. No fun.
