Here at Babyexpert we've been sent 5 sample kits of pain relief products that are meant to ease backache.
We’d love to know if these products work for you - so we’d like to send five of you a kit each to test!
Deep Freeze has sent us gels and cooling pads that work in a similar way to a cold compress so, it says, they’re safe during pregnancy.
If you’re pregnant and suffer from back pain and would like to try them, send us a reply telling us:
-how many weeks pregnant you are;
-why you’d like to try a new kind of back pain relief;
-what has worked to ease your back pain so far.
We'll choose five people to send a kit to by midday on Friday, September 27.

Hi, im 25 weeks pregnant, arthritic in my hips and have been diagnosed with sciatica. suffer with back pains especially at night, ive always suffered because of the arthritis but its become so much worse of late. i take paracetamol as its the only thing i can take and use a body pillow to help my posture at night but dont get much relief from either so anything that eases the pain and allows me to get a good night sleep before bubba arrives would be amazing. thanks.

I'm 20 weeks and 3 days and have suffered back and hip pain low down since bleeding between 8 and 12 weeks and am now suffering all over back pain since my boobs went from a 34a to 36dd! Im at high risk of premature labour aswell so wonder if this has anything to do with it as i had no pain with my first till the very end. It's worst when I wake up in the morning as I'm so stiff. Getting up at night to pee is a nightmare too. I find sleeping with a pillow between my legs and back massage help. When sitting on the sofa I find stuffing pillows in the small of my back really helps ease the pain too. Sometimes just getting up and having a good stretch gives a few minutes of relief. Any help appreciated, running around after a 4 year old and walking the half hour journey to school/back home 4 times a day is killing me off! X
