You may as well to change your computer chair to an exercise ball. But the precondition is that you get a right one which works on you best.
Fifth, massage is one of the most effective way on easing back pain no matter you are a pregnant woman or a common person. You can ask your husband, family member or one of your good friends to do a massage on you. If they are all non-available, go to visit a massage therapist, but you must make sure that the massage therapist is licensed and professional enough in handling pregnancy. You can ask your doctor to recommend one for you. It would be more reliable.
Sixth, you should pay much attention to your daily diet. Eat healthy and drink lots of water. The basic idea here is to eliminate gaining extra weight which is beyond a normal weight for pregnancy. It is normal to increase 35 pounds on you during your whole pregnancy. If extra weight exists, it will give pressure on your back.
Finally, if all above ways do not work on you at all, ask your doctor for a safe pain relief thru medication. No matter which way you choose, you should remember that baby takes what you take.
