I have this pain in the centre of my left buttock-at least that's where it seems to be coming from! The pain also seems to travel into the top of my thigh. Anyone get anything like this or ever hear of it?
Its the baby lying on a nerve,its awful i can feel your pain.
Thanks for the reply-I'm only 12 weeks-could it be causing that much pain already!
DH gets this, and it is Syatica( SP). It starts in his bump and runs down is leg, it can get very uncomfortable. Basically its a trapped nerve. He goes to a chiropractor for it.
Dont know if thats what you have, but sounds the same
Yeah its called syattica or something. And its to do with baby getting comfy on your nerve! I had this for ages, with my last baby. It eventually passes whenever the baby decides to move off it!
Hey Thistle. Just replying to pain. I had this(Siatica)with my Ds and it was a nightmare. It happened at around 30 weeks with me and towards the end I had to be put on painkillers and everything. Even during my labour my left leg was very sore and i had a bad limp. Thankfully it did go away after baby was born. I didn't have it with My daughter. So ihope not to get it this time either. But basically it is just the baby lying on your siatic nerve in your back. Ihope it moves of it for you.
I have something like this too the last few days and it is horrible. My hair almost stands on end when I get the pain.
I am not sure if it is sciatica though Thistle, because according to the internoodle, it is mostly in the latter stages that you get pregnancy-induced sciatica and it is due to increased weight and posture changes. I think what I have anyway is Pelvic Girdle Pain, as opposed to sciatica, see: [url:2hseiqc8]http://www.babycentre.co.uk/pregnancy/antenatalhealth/physicalhealth/pelvicgirdlepain/[/url:2hseiqc8], but that is just self-diagnosing from info online! Going to the GP on Wed so I will mention it then.
We need a new bed, so maybe that will help a bit, but if anyone has any words of wisdom about ways to relieve it, please do share. Off now for a warm bath to see if that helps. I wonder would a massage help too (if done by someone specialising in pregnancy masssage)?
I hope you get some relief anyway. That article has tips to follow which may help.
Thanks a million for all the replies girls!
