What can I do about my aching back?


Back pain can be a debilitating state. It can also be a symptom of something else, entirely. Any pregnant person will tell you that the relatively sudden addition of body mass (that's baby, not fat) tends to throw your balance way off normal. Until that mass has been removed, the back, literally, strains continuously tocompensate for the change in the center of gravity. Does this type of physical stress (increased body [fat, not baby] mass) explain why your back may be feeling the pinch? If so, do something to lessen the mass, thereby treating the cause, not the symptom(s).
