  • I would call the doc. Just to be on the safe side. I do know that a lot of women suffer from ciatica during pregnancy because of the extra weight. It is very painful, but does go away after birth.

  • Its not ciatica, lol I have that really bad too, its more of a dull pain that makes its way up to my head and makes it feel as my heads going to explode.

  • i would say get up and try moving around could just be from the way the baby is laying he or she could be just pinching a nerve i have had this happen a few times my self but once i move around the pain seems too go away
