Dear Pratibha,thanks for query.During pregnancy the weight of uterus is increased.Due to this its support are getting stretched.Normally this all changes come back to pre pregnancy stage after 6-8 weeks.This at times give rise to pain.At times when you are nursing your baby your calcium requirements are quite high.Please start taking calcium tablets along with proper diet till at least 1 year after delivery.At the same time if the backache is very severe please take help of orthopedic surgeon.bye and take care.
