  • As far as the sciatica I'm not sure but it's probably just the baby. But for the peeing. Hello, been there and done that! :) When I was pregnant, from about the 5th month on I had to pee ALL THE TIME!!! Or it at least felt like I had to go. The kid was just layin' on my bladder :)

  • The baby could be laying on the sciatic nerve, which is pretty common. There isnt really anything that can be done about it, except a lot of poking and praying that he/she will MOVE! As far as the peeing, going all the time, completely normal. Bladder leakage, normal too. Especially if this is a 2nd, 3rd, etc pregnancy. Happy pregnancy!

  • I do that whether I'm pregnant or not. It's worse now I'm pregnant. COughing, sneezing, laughing. Doesn't matter. It is what it is. Sciatica is common too.
