Hip and Back Pain during Pregnancy

Has anyone heard of using "Two Old Goats Essential Lotion" while pregnant? Someone suggested that I use it to help with the hip and back pain I am having but not sure if it is safe for the baby. My doctors appointment is not for another 2 weeks and I need some relief. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've never heard of it. I have however heard of something that I know from experience is both safe and effective - it's called the Hip Brace (aka: "trochanter belt"), and like the rib belt, it too does a nice job of doubling as a lower back brace.

I don't know if it would help your particular situation, but it can't hurt to find out. More information is here: http://forums.webmd.com/3/pregnancy-second-trimester-exchange/resource/40
