  • You can have problems with it even when you arent pregnant
    What I do is put a warm compress on the sore spot and then have my husband rub for a little while .
    It feels better after that

  • Warm compress and lay on the bed and have your husband or SO grab your leg (on the side that is hurting) and have him use his weight and pull. It will give major relief to the nerve. Sounds kooky, I know, but I had it with all three pregnancies (still have occassionally) and I saw a chiro who specialized in pg women and this helped sooooo much!
