In the last few days I've started getting a very sudden sharp pain just below my right butt cheek. Like, grabbing my backside and yelping 'ouch' kind of agony that stops me in my tracks and makes me afraid to take another step. It usually happens after I've been sitting or standing still for a while, and then go to take my first step. I've had odd feelings all over my bump at times, but usually I'd say it was discomfort rather than so bad as pain - like everything is just a little stretched. I have occasionally had a kind of stabby pain near my belly-button (always very short lived, like a few seconds and it has gone away if I rub it), and a stitch-like pain just below my bump when I'm walking. Sometimes one or both of my hips hurt too, but I had similar hip pain before I was pregnant so I'm not sure if the two are related. A bit of googling (dangerous, I know) tells me that it could be sciatica or PGP, and that often doctors get the diagnosis of these two wrong. I have a tendancy to just nod and agree with whatever medical professionals say, even if I'm thinking 'no, that doesn't sound right' because I'm meek and non-confrontational. My next MW appointment is on 8th March and I want to go armed with a bit of knowledge to understand them and make sure they get it right. So are there any ladies who have experience one or the other (or both) of these conditions and can describe how it felt to them?
