Owww (back pain question)

I've got some pretty bad back pain on my right side, but it's only when I'm sitting down (in front of the computer or driving). When I'm up and walking around, it's fine. Is it sciatica or something else, and what can I do about it? I don't want to have to stand for the last 6 weeks of my pregnancy! The heating pad works while it's on, and Tylenol and Advil don't seem to work...
