I am 8 1/2 weeks pregnant and am in severe pain...................
I have this absolutely horrendous sharp, shooting pain striking up through the right side of my buttocks and lower back..
I know that people say that there are alot of things that you have to just put up with when your pregnant but this is so painful.
Ive tryed stretching it out but it doesnt work.. Its crippling and sometimes i can barely walk or sit.
What should I do??????
I'm about 9 weeks now, and just last week started getting that very same pain on the same side. A friend at work said that it's my pelvis moving and preparing to hold the baby. I thought I was about to throw my back out!
I have found that stretching does not make it feel better...but it has eased off this week.
I'm 22 weeks pregnant and was almost in tears last weekend from the same pain in my
Lower right back and butt. I went and saw my physical therapist and she fixed me! Turns out when our pelvis shifts, sometime we get out of line. My right hip was noticeably higher than my left, and the pain I felt was from my SI joint being out of line. After 15 minutes of tugs on my legs, it was amazing to see the difference of my hip alignment. She told me many pregnant women go to their doctors with the same complaint and they tell them
It's their sciatic nerve and there's not much they can do- when really for many women it's a joint alignment issue like myself that can be managed! Please go to a physical therapist and get looked at. It can only help!
