Tomorrow i'll be 15 weeks. Latley i've been having really bad low back pain. I'm wondering if this is normal for only 15 weeks since i'm not showing yet and should have no pressure there? i have been working every day so maybe it's because i'm lifting kids and constantly bending over? It just worries me cause low back pain could mean so many things. I did rent a doppler for the month and there is still a heartbeat lol so i'm just being paranoid. Cause it's really back, when i lay flat on my back i can barley get up because of it. Has anyone else experienced this?

You could try a heating pad. I get back pain, but I am showing finally. I actually think it's because I stick my belly out, so I look pregnant and not "fluffy". LOL Doing that hurts my back more. I use a heating pad and take warm baths, which help.

When is your next dr. appt? You should definitely mention it to them. Most likely it's just the bending and lifting you do at your job, combined with the pregnancy hormones that make your joints and ligaments looser than they normally are. But it could be something weird like a kidney issue that the doctor could figure out easily with a urine test.

Laying flat on your back even though you aren't showing is putting extra weight on your back as well. So that could be aggrevating things if you back is already feeling over worked. Even without showing you are carrying extra weight around your middle and that is putting extra stress on your back. If you are lifting and bending lots you are simply adding to that stress. Try to take it easy and don't lift anything over 20lbs. Heating pad and a warm bath will help relive some of it. Pillow between the knees can help some too with the lower back. Sorry you are in pain. You can take regular strength tylenol too.

My back hurt my whole pregnancy. That and my hips hurting are like my first pregnancy symptoms so I wouldn't worry too much.
I also slept on my back until the very end. You could try a pillow under your knees when you are on your back. I agree the bath and heating pad or hot water bottle are really helpful!

I would mention it to your doctor, but my back always hurts when I'm pregnant. It is worse in the earlier months than the later ones, to be honest. It's one of the first signs when I am pregnant. Like the others said, a heating pad (on low) or a warm water bottle may help. I hope it eases up for you soon.
