I have had back problems off and on since I was pregnant with Henry. It comes and goes, but I haven't had a really bad episode in about 4 years.
My back started in on our trip to Mississippi. The car ride was hell, and sleeping on the crappy air mattress at my in-laws didn't help. It got steadily worse after we got back, but I ignored it, thinking it would get better if I just kept exercising.
