Is this normal pregnancy pregnancy aches?

My back starting aching last night. My middle back aches and so does my lower back. I am almost 30 weeks pregnant. Is this normal? Also, is there anything I can do help relieve it? It made for a rough night because I could not get comfortable. I was hoping I could allieviate it a little bit so that perhaps I could have a better time today. Thanks.


Oops!! i just realized that I typed pregnancy twice in my question. Sorry about that.

Update 2:

10 weeks with #2, I have actually registered for one. My shower is coming up pretty soon so hopefully I will get one. thanks for the info.

    yup these are definitely normal. Best thing for sleeping is to put a throw pillow between your thighs and knees or sleep with a body pillow. It's hard to get comfortable, but still helps with the back aches.

    Pregnancy gives aches and pains. It is sharp pains in your lower back that move to the front you have to look for. I used to get cramps in my calves with my daughter, I couldnt move my leg, I would wake up screaming in the middle of the night from pain. Try taking a tylenol before bed to ease the pain a little.

    Its just the weight of the baby... Its normal!... Try laying sideways with a pilow wedged under your belly, try to lift the weight of it on the pillow, so it can be relieved from pulling on your back, but usually, there no real cure till the babys born!! Good Luck!

    yes, pretty normal. you should be sleeping on your side particularly on your left. never sleep on your back. a body pillow would really help.
