22 weeks pregnant, lower back pain on waking up in the morning. Treatment?

hi, im pregnant and having lower back pain where when i get up in the morning or after sitting for about and hour. i get the pain in my back when i get up, im unable to stand straight and end up bending right over, as i start to move my legs the cannot handle the weight and i either end up back down or walking slowly bent over for a good few mins until i can b fully again. im only 22 weeks pregnant and i havent put on lots of weight, i have 2 kids and none of their pregnancies caused me to have back pains like these although with my youngest child the labour was extremely painful when i felt the contractions the pain in my back was so overbearing that i didnt even feel the belly pains. what do you suggest i do to treat this? thank you

Good morning. First congrats. Happy to hear two uneventful pregnancies. The pain u are suffering is due to the fetus that isputting a lot of strain to ur low back. U feel this pain walking straight and relieved stooping forward. When ever u have pain try to lie down supine on a flat surface and do exercies to ur back. This is not related to ur previous pregnancies.
but common in multiple pregnancies. This relieves by itself. When u have severe pain u can take paracetamol tab 500mg. Thank u
