To alleviate backaches caused by your pregnancy, you should try to maintain good posture. Tips to maintain good posture include the following:
 
  • Sit with a footstool or use an ergonomic chair at the office
  • Avoid standing for too long
  • Sleep with a small pillow under your side at the waist
  • Lift things with your legs instead of your back.
