I'm 24 weeks, and for the last 2 days I've had the worst neck pain. I woke up with it in the morning, so I thought I'd just slept on it badly and figured it would get better. But it's been 2 days now and I'm still sore. Maybe it's related to getting bigger and the weight starting to pull on my back?

I've tried stretching and DH has tried rubbing it. But the only relief I can get is when I sit on the couch with a hot pad on it, looking straight ahead.

Anyone else have something like this? Any other ideas for helping it to feel better?

All I can say is "me too" right now. It started this morning. Not sure if I did something, but I hope it goes away. It's sore/stiff all the way from my right ear to down into my shoulder. I'm bedridden, so it's not from heavy lifting or anything. Stress maybe. I'm 13 1/2 wks now.

Living happily and embracing adventures.
