Re: Lower Back Pain :(
I had lower back pains, and there were two excercises I did that really helped (in the "What to expect" book). And, my ob recommended one of them. The one he recommended was the pelvic tilt, where you lay on your back and bring your pelvic up and squeeze your butt. He said he does 50 / day anyway! The other one is if you "get on all fours", and arch your back up, look down, and breathe out, then arch in, tilt head up, breathe in. That one helped me when I couldn't take the pain anymore b/c it takes pressure off the back for awhile. Good luck. Also, I GOT RID OF the heals. I was wearing 1 1/2 inch heals (still pretty low). I bought some black Northface tennis shoes, and it has helped tremendously.
