Stretch ur back out. I also go to the chriopractor for mine. It seems to help. I havn't been having near as much pain.

I had to go to the chiro for that when I was preggo also. I have to look around and find the paper with all the excerices I had to do.  One was to lay on your side and raise your leg up and down slowly i remember and take warm showers and heat pad on it.

yup i as gonna suggest getting on all fours too... gravity will help pull the baby down off of that nerve.... that was my son's favorite spot to sit... i was always in tears trying to stand up from sitting on the floor... ahhh!

this baby hasnt really done it yet. my back gets painful sometimes already but nothing like that.

I would ask the dr about the heating pad because so dr's and midwives will tell you no because it's dangerous for the baby, but some say it's ok mine said it was ok but I have heard many moms get told no.

How long does it usually last for?.. Like couple days, weeks..etc? Or how long did it last for you ladies? This is the second day its happened..but i am guessing it could prolong for a while?

Sit on the edge of a chair stick one leg out and the other should be bent under you (like a lunge sort of position) and stretch towards the leg that is out. repeat for the other side. Also, rocking on an exercise ball will help too!
