Re: How to deal with back pain

I have suffered pre-pregnancy with back pain as well and am scared that it will be worse with pregnancy (digenerative disc at L5).  I'm not familiar with what a spinal tap involves, though it sounds painful.   

I've been doing prenatal yoga, and trying very hard to stay active.  You can still work your core while pregnant, and a strong core helps me with back pain, as well as the stretching with yoga.  So far at 17 weeks, I'm actually less painful than normal. Good luck!!
