Hi. Is it normal to feel lower backache (nearer to the butt area) , like something pinching the nerve, during pregnancy? I am in my 14th week.

Hi, I experience this lower backpain since the start of my 2nd Trimester. Have consulted the gyne and he say it is normal. He advise asking the husband/partner to massage the area every day to relieve the pain.

Yes, it's normal. The aches will start from this time onwards. You can find out more at this link :

Me toooooo :( Been having backache since like 6 weeks n now I’m 14+w Everyday like old auntie like that “aiya aiya” when trying to stand up. Lol

Yeah. My right butt cheek has been painful since 8 weeks and I'm currently in my 10th week. Like I sprained my right butt cheek. Lol

I'm 18 weeks and I have this too. It's like a sharp pain at my tailbone area. No idea what causes it...
