Thanks for posting your query.
It sounds as though you could have strained or sprained your back muscle.
In pregnancy, most women are more prone to strains and sprains because of the pregnancy hormone progesterone, which tends to relax the muscles and you are more prone to injuries.
You could try over the counter preparations like pain relieving ointments. Apply gently to the area which hurts, but do not massage too much.
If there is no relief in a couple of days, you can go and see your doctor for check up and prescription of oral pain killers.
Best wishes.
