  • Yes, I have diverticulitis. It can be controlled mostly with diet, if you go to they probably have a specific list of what to eat and what not to but mostly try to avoid nuts and seeds also chocolate has been know to aggravate it but most doctors don't tell you that.

  • Where at on your left side?? Lower like your hip or higher like your ribs?? Baby could be laying on a bad spot too. If its lower it could be your sciatic nerve.

  • Left side sounds like colon-- gas or stool is probably stuck. And I'm sure your love bug has a nice foot up in the way holding back the blockage.

    Water. Water. Water. Try hard to move around.

    You may want to get on a all fours and let your belly hang. It could help release some baby pressure from the area.

  • With my 1st I had such a sharp pain in my lower back/side near the end of the pregnancy. It look me forever to walk anyware because I was in so much pain. It felt like I was getting stabbed each step I took. I told everyone about it, but They never told me anything bad about it, I geuss they thaught it was just bad back pain, but it even took a while for it to stop even after I had my son.
