I am having back pain in one specific spot in my back after eating large meals. It is on the leff side right in the middle. Has anyone had this experience?

I am 30 weeks pregnant. The pain went away for a few weeks, but is back and it comes after I eat.

I believe that is where the large intestine turns to go downwards. You may have some trapped gas in there which can be quite painful. I am no doctor, so just a guess.......
good luck!

I had a similar experience when pregnant. There is a yoga pose that is fantastic for relieving this discomfort, and it is suitable for pregnant women. I can't remember what it is called, though! You would sit on your knees, feet tucked under your tuckus, perhaps with a small rolled towel between your ankles and posterior to relieve pressure on your legs. Then gently turn from your waist to one side and then the other. I'm explaining it terribly, I know, but maybe that will give you an idea to start looking for some prenatal yoga positions that might help.

It also could be heartburn, or your gallbladder, or just your stomach. Remember everything is pushed Waaayyy up and to either side, so it's harder to tell, and you feel things you wouldn't otherwise feel.

I would try to just eat smaller portions at one time, and drink inbetween meals, rather than during. Take note of any food s that seem to offer particular problems.

Pregnancy increases your risk for gallbladder problems and one sign can be pain in your upper back after eating.
