Suffering From Extreme Lower Back Pain in Pregnancy

I know exactly how you feel. I suffered from an extreme lower back pain in pregnancy, and it seemed like there was no end to it! That was with my first pregnancy and I’ve made plenty of the mistakes, and I hope you won’t have to by reading this article!

You see, I used to run around for the whole day, not taking care of myself like I should have. NO naps, no rest, I lifted things, I did it all because I felt so good. I was so excited to have my baby! The energy I felt was so high, unbelievable. Well, you know how it is.

But…I was so wrong to do it like that. No matter how good you feel, you should NEVER not take care of your body. If you don’t take care of it, you will end up with extreme lower back pain in pregnancy, exactly what happened to me!

It was my third trimester, at 36 weeks, and I had so many things I had to do. We were painting our house, every single thing, and I was helping out. We wanted to get the baby`s room ready, sky blue with yellow mix in it, I wanted to wash all of the clothing, bed set, etc, and to top it off, I was still working a lot more than full time. I was self employed, and when you are self employed if you don’t work you don’t make money, and I wanted to take couple of months off from work when the baby comes, so I worked over time.

So one day, with all that was going on, I felt this sharp pain in my back, and it felt like it was shooting down my leg. You would have thought I would stop at that, and get some rest, but I was so stubborn I kept on going. I went to the store, and it was getting worse. I had to stop and see few of my clients, and by that time, I could not get out of my car. That is how bad it got. So I drive home, which with traffic took me, 1 full hour, and when I got home, there was no body there to help me. I set in my car for 20 minutes not being able to get out! Because of that, I was ordered to bed rest for 2 full weeks!

So when I said, I know exactly what an extreme lower back pain in pregnancy is, I meant it! Even thought I had to stay in bed for 2 weeks, after couple of days I felt a lot better, because I used some safe stretching exercises and few natural remedies to make the pain go away.
