I just thought i would share with everyone that having a sore back in pregnancy althou they like us to believe it is normal it ISNT.
My first pregnancy i would be in tears with a sore back thinking it was normal, but i now know different during my second pregnancy i visited a chiropracter and what a lovely pregnancy it was , no back pain at all, I urge you if you have back pain get it checked by a chiro not a doctor, i went to doctors and not one of them picked up my s curve in my spine that was as plain as day anyone could see it if only they looked.
Having a back pain free pregnancy is so much nicer.

Although I agree that a very sore back is not normal (the type that has you in tears) an aching back is. When I say aching back I mean the type that starts aching from standing too long and from you arching your back so as to hold your belly up (which is what I do) It stands to reason why your back would be a bit sore as the muscles have to adjust to the weight and posture as well as the hormones that softens your muscles does'nt help. This is all normal.
But if you are having a very painful back to the point of tears...then I would think a trip to the chiro. is needed as your back should'nt be that sore.

I had a back problem in early pregnancy and found that treatment by a physio really helped. After the problem cleared up I started doing Pilates which kept the problem away for the rest of the pregnancy. I am still doing Pilates now DS is a year old and I hope that next time around my back will be stronger to start with and I won't get the problem again.
