  • So very sorry! I don't know how far along you are, but the last month or so have always been hard for me. You will experience so many different kinds of pain and levels of discomfort. For the most part, it only means the baby is growing, moving around, stretching you, and getting closer to delivery day! Hang in there!!!

  • the last few weeks are miserable. your body is preping for labor and it's really not pleasant.

  • sounds to me like the baby is pressing on your sciatic nerve... uncomfortable, even painful, but not dangerous. just watch for other signs of labor to be sure :oD
