Third Trimester of Pregnancy Answer A555
The enlarged uterus in the later stages of pregnancy creates pressure on the spinal nerves and causes pain. According to your preexisting conditions, you‘ve already had a kind of spinal nerve pain (sciatica). You can take paracetamol and B-vitamins to help manage the experience. Everything should return to normal after delivery; you need only hold on for a few more weeks.
