I am now 31wks pregnant from my second child. With my first everything went fine no pains or discomfort. At delivery time I did have an epidural. Now with baby 2 just about 3 months ago I started to experiense pains in my lower back when I sit down and stand up is this normal? and how do I try to make it better
Sounds like baby is on your siatic (sciatic) (sp) nerve. Get on your knees and rock back and forth, and if possible down to your elbows/ forearms and this will shift baby off that nerve most of the time. I sat in a rocking stool that goes with a rocking chair sideways and swayed and that seemed to help too.
