I just started getting it last week. I'm 33 wks. It just tapers off on it's own, had back pain twice too but again went away on it's own. Walking helps it believe it or not!!
Getting out of bed has been a struggle, but anything to relieve this pain. Thanks for the advice!
Sciatic nerve pain is notoriously common in pregnancy. I had it horribly my first pregnancy and suffered through it. This pregnancy I started seeing a chiropractor as soon as I started feeling that tell-tale pain. Best thing I ever did! My last pregnancy the pain got so bad I could hardly walk. :-(
I'm just fortunate it stayed away til now! I'm sure closer to my due date I'll have some more pains to complain about!
I have it worse when I go into work.. its horrible!! Sometimes ill be walking from one side of the front end to another and it stops me dead in my tracks!! Good luck to ya! I'm 39 weeks 1 day.
Im 32 weeks. there have been days i can't walk. it *****.
I have sciatic pain already will the pain just get worse as my pregnancy goes? My bf massages my lower back and my butt (it's a very tender spot that holds a pressure point to your back--what my friend told me in a simple way & so far it really helps)
Im with you! It was killing me yesterday. Now my hips are killing me.
Sorry to say, there really isn't anything you can do! It's from the baby putting pressure on that particular nerve..I had it bad with my third baby and again with this one!! Somedays its not too bad n others its awful!! Massage can help, but it never did for me!! N walking never helped either!! That makes it worse, for me! That's what's the most painful,trying to walk around!! The days its really bad, I take tylenol so I can function! It does go away once baby is born tho!!! :-)
