Hi bees…I am 38 weeks and suffering from some pretty bad lower back pain. It’s more of a dull pain but it is pretty constant. I just went for a walk and that seemed to help as does light stretching. Is there anything you find helps a lot? Would it be bad to take tylenol, does that help at all? Thanks!

Sitting on my birthing ball REALLY helps my lower back! So does doing pelvic tilts: cat/cow AND while laying on your back (10 for 10s each). And Tylenol is okay in pregnancy. =)

I’m 38 weeks and I have to agree with sitting on a exercise ball. I also get on my hands and knees and alternate between arching and dropping my back and hips, that helps too

Ditto to PP: my birth ball is awesome. So is cat/cow. I can’t lay on my back, but you can do pelvic tilts on your birth ball, as well.

@mrsjazz: I can’t lay on my back much anymore either =/… but my chiropractor told me that would help my PGP since I injuried myself a few months ago! I was pretty amazing at how much it really does help! =)
OP: Oh also, doing the cat/cow will help a posterior baby turn anterior. So if you’re worried about or beginning to have back labor it’s a great tool to use!
