You’re getting heavier and you may experience lower back pain as the extra weight throws you off balance a little, causing your muscles to compensate.
Backache can be agony, so don’t be afraid to ask for support from friends and family. You need as much help as you can get, particularly if you have other children to look after.
Some people find that warmth (from a hot water bottle or just a soak in the bath) can provide relief from back pain. You can also try alternating warm things with cold things (like a pack of frozen peas), which some people find helpful in relieving muscle spasms.
Gentle exercise can help, too: swimming and antenatal yoga are good (but make sure you tell your instructor about any problems you are having).
