I've been getting more frequent sciatic nerve pinch like pains in my lower back on my right side. It gets to the point where I can't even walk and it even pinches if I'm just sitting and NOT moving. I'm 20 1/2 weeks along and I experienced some mild sciatic paid with my first pg but this is nothing like that, its 10x worse! Is there anything I can do to ease the pain? I'm afraid to know the answer, but I have to know, is it going to get worse the bigger I get? I'm not that big yet, but the pain has only been gradual until last night, meaning I'd get it if I stepped wrong once in a while. Last night I could barely walk to my bedroom to go to bed.Answer Question

Ask your doc for a PT referral... A PT can work with you and show you things that will work for your specific issue. As an Athletic Trainer I'm not comfortable treating during pregnancy or I'd just tell you some things to do... I have to defer this to a PT. I have seen the PT's help may woman with this issue. All you can do right now is ice and try to find a comfortable position to sit in.
