  • I took warm baths and got a referral from my doctor for prenatal massages. My insurance wouldn't pay for it, but we have a flexible spending account that would cover any "medically related" treatment. That helped a lot-- the therapist loosened up all the muscles in the low back and hips, even relieving my sciatic pain. Lying down helps a lot, too. One weekend I spent most of my time in bed to help ease the pain.

    Good luck!
