  • the baby is probably just hitting a nerve but i would call your OB just to make sure.

  • Probably pregnancy-induced sciatica. It's when the baby puts too much pressure on your sciatic nerve, causing LOTS of pain. It sucks, but it will go away after you have the baby. Ask your OB for a list of simple exercises you can do to help with the discomfort.
