Yup, sounds like your baby might be putting excess pressure right on your sciatic nerve, whenever your sit (in just the right way) it's going to pinch it a little and send that lovely feeling shooting across the path of the nerve. I had this with both my babies, my second was far worse because of a back injury (on my sciatic nerve) in between the two. When you feel it coming on just put your fingers (if you can reach) right on the base of your back and push in as you twist your hips to help relieve the pressure.
