lower back pain

This past week my back pain has escalated :( its my lower right side.. the pain shoots down the side of my butt too! It kind of feels like my nerves are grinding together with my bones. Im 20 weeks so i can only imagine its going to get worse. Anyone have any suggestions to help with this or anyone have the same problem?

Sounds like baby is on your sciatic nerve. Try the cat/cow position in yoga, or lean our bounce gently on an exercise ball. It will help baby move off that nerve in your spine and you'll feel better. Once you find what works to move baby you can do it more quickly when they go back to that spot again.
