I'm a ftm and know that back pain is normal during pregnancy. I can barely walk, sit, or lay down without excruciating pain in my lower back/top of my butt. I'm 37 weeks 5 days but I don't think they are contractions. It's been happening since Sunday evening. I've read about the sciatic nerve pain but would that last for this long? What did you do for some relief? Is this something I should call my doctor about? Thanks in advance for any advice ladies :-)
yes siatic can last this long i am dealing with the same problem along with kidney stones Pain full omg!!! i would call your OB and see if they can help you with this try a nice hot bath that is what i do or shower hope this works also try putting your legs up or laying on your side with a pillow between your knees Good luck
Sounds like baby dropped and is sitting on your nerve.. My baby dropped and sat on my nerve for the last month and a half.. and the back pain was continuous. Try soaking in a warm bath, that seemed to help me.. gl!
I've tried the hot showers and pillows between my legs. It helps a little bit but not very much. I'm guessing labor or her moving will be the only way to fully get rid of the pain. Thanks for the suggestions! Hopefully it gets better for all of us soon! :-)
