    Hoping for some advice please. Developed a bad pain in my lower left back/left bum cheek, could it be a trapped nerve maybe caused by babies position? Hurts like hell. Any ideas?

    Had my first bout of leg cramp last night too, feeling in the wars a bit :(

    Hey, I had that today but it cleared when I stretched it out. I used to have sciatica years ago and that's what it felt like so I'm guessing it's a trapped nerve thing :( x

    Sounds like sciatica chick. Mention to your midwife next time and they can arrange some physio for you see if that helps xx

    I had this too - its horrid. I spoke to my mid wife about it last week and she said to stretch out, go on all fours and stretch/rock forwards and backwards and she also said to take paracetamol. By the time I saw her it had past and then had a couple of tweaks yesterday but the last stint lasted about a week. I was nearly in tears a couple of time. I found it easiest to keep moving rather than sit still for long periods of time.

    hope it passes soon - hoovering hurt me the most, so get OH to do it!!! x

    Been to the docs and he referred me for physio, and I should get an appointment Monday. He said it was the ligaments n hip bones moving, he did give it a name bit I can't remember it. Pregnancy brain!

    I have to rest too, so no housework for me. One plus :)

    Classic sciatica, as long as you are going to the loo ok and no change in leg reflexes no need to see drs.
