I have had a dull back ache all day, from the time I woke up this morning. I usually have a back ache in the mornings but once I'm up and moving around it goes away. This however hasn't, I went to the doc yesterday and they said that I'm having sciatic nerve pain. Could this be associated with it? This pregnancy has been totally different than with my daughter. I have had every symptom in the book. I'm just wondering what it feels like. TIA!!Answer Question

I didn't have much back pain throughout my pregnancy, but somehow had excruciating back labor. Sorry if this is TMI but I was in so much pain at one point that I completely lost all control of my bodily functions. I literally was barfing and going to the bathroom all at once. That's when I went from totally committed to a "natural" labor to finally requesting the epidural. It felt WORSE that what I image it feels like to have a knife slowly stabbed into your back and twisted all around. Seriously. And I tend to have a pretty high pain tolerance. I think you'll get a different answer from pretty much anyone you ask though -- everyone's experience is at least a little different than the next person's........
