I am 12 weeks along, and do not have any back pain to complain about now, but arunod 5-7 weeks, i did. And you are right, it is VERY annoying!!! (the most annoying part was people telling me I was full of it and too early to feel back pain!)The only thing I did (because i can't stand taking medicines) is i used a throw pillow from the couch under my back when i was sleeping and another smaller pillow right between my knees and this helped within just a few days. Also, try putting your feet up whenever possible. I also have a desk job and I propped my feet up on the computer (hehe) and it felt WONDERFUL. (just try not to let anyone catch you!I was told that the pain is just your body getting adjusted to having something new in your body. I was also told that my hips were expanding to make room! Who knows? But I will tell you this, it doesn't last long for the first trimester but i know 3rd trimester get ready for back pains!
