  • You didn't have to give a history when you met with your doctor the first time?

    ANY pre-existing condition must be discussed - absolutely. Tell your doctor!!!

  • Is the pain in your low back, almost near your tail bone? I have scoliosis and had sharp, intense pain around my tail bone during the entire 1st trimester of my pregnancy with my daughter. I was told it was sciatica and that it didn't normally occur until the 3rd trimester - but I was just lucky! If this is like your pain, try heating pads and tylenol. also, going to a chiropractor or physical therapist could help alleviate your pain. if it is sciatica, it just goes away on its own - when it feels like it.
    otherwise, I am unsure of any other issues that scoliosis could cause for pregnancy. I had an easy delivery with my daughter.
    and i wish you the same!
    feel free to pm me if you'd like to know more about sciatica or to just talk
