  • SCIATICA- the baby is sitting on a nerve, normal and should go away after you deliver

  • It's your sciatic nerve! Honestly I were you I would get to a chiropracter ASAP because mine go SO bad with my first pregnancy I could hardly walk.

    It's a normal thing that happens to many women in pregnancy but it's definately NOT a fun thing. GOOD LUCK!

  • well you see what everyone else says...they are right it is sciatica. Is this your first pregnancy? For me my sciatica got worse with each pregnancy. Chiropractor can give you some help!

  • I would say its your sciatic nerve... just like every one else said lol... I started having problems with my sciatic nerve around 4 months with my first pregnancy. And am already starting to notice again at only 7 weeks this time around... But you are almost done baking at this point haha so you wont have to deal with it for very long. Be VERY glad for that!!!
