Quoting Becky Hathorn:" I wake up frequently with a very painful/pinched nerve feeling in my right lower back that travels down ... [snip!] ... anything relieve it? I see my doctor the 24th of this month but am wondering if i can alleive the pain a little before than."
My sis is a labor and delivery nurse. When it happened to me earlier on in my pregnancy (before baby dropped) she said that they advise people at her L&D unit when they call for help to drink something cold and sugary and lay on their left side. This will encourage baby to move. The relief could be immediate or take an hour or so, but baby should move and as the swelling goes down you should start to feel better.
