Can anyone remind me if you can use a TENS machine at 19 weeks for low back pain? Think it's safe but would just like to check.

I didn't think so. I went for a tens demo at 30-ish weeks and was told you couldn't use a tens until about 38 weeks as it might bring on early labour....
I'm not sure about 19 weeks, but I'd def double check first (maybe with a tens manufacturer or instruction manual or NHS direct etc etc)
