After helping (not much) move our office around today i now have a really uncomfortable pain in my back. I had been suffering with some back pain a few weeks back if i was on my feet to long but its been fine for a while now until today. Could i have done some damage??

You're more likely to pull a muscle or strain something when you're pregnant - the relaxin hormone make your muscles looser and more prone to that kind of thing.

I've often felt uncomfortable after moving furniture or decorating (which we've been doing a hell of a lot of - and I'm 32 weeks)... it usually goes off after a day or so.

Unlikely to be more than that unless you're in excruciating pain, I'd say.

Have a warm (not hot) bath and get your DP to give you a rub - that usually works for me.

And henceforth pull the pregnancy card for any such workplace shenanigans and have a cuppa instead...
