  • With my first I had sciatic pain since before I knew I was pregnant, and with the pregnancy I'm 5 weeks along and I have it again.

    I sleep with a pillow under my bum and it helps it at night. I plan on looking in to other things to help. Possibly yoga or something. If all else fails I think I'll go to a chiropractor because the last pregnancy was so hard because of that!
