Butt cheek issues

Sciatica sucks. Especially in your butt cheek.

I've had it on and off throughout pregnancy, but it really hasn't been that bad until now. I can't sit, walk, or even lie down without it hurting.

I've become that weirdo who grabs and massages their butt cheek while they walk to make the pain bearable. It's okay, you can laugh. I'd laugh at me, too :)

I'll grab your butt for you if it helps. Glad to do my duty.

I get really bad sciatica pain too, so I understand how uncomfortable it is. And I am not even pregnant :/ I hope it goes away soon!

Katy said...

I've had it for most of this pregnancy. Are you trying a heating pad on low? The doctor also gave me some stretches to do. I can see if I can scan the sheet for you if you'd like. Let me know if you'd like them....

I'm glad you said it acceptable to laugh because I did. I'm sorry girl.

Mike- You're such an awesome husband!

I know how you feel. I had this with my first pregnancy from about 28 weeks and on.

I've had it with this pregnancy since 14 weeks and on. It's AWFUL. I find rolling over in bed is the worst of all. Now I've got some extra pain in my pelvis area too. Super.

Thanks, ladies. I'm glad to hear I'm not alone! However, I am sorry that some of you have gone or are going through this, too :(

I cracked up at your hubby's comment! And he even signed it DH. What a great guy!

And I'm sorry you're having issues! Not too much longer and it'll be gone!

You know, I don't dread anything to do with pregnancy or childbirth, but one of the two things I am not necessarily looking forward to is sciatica pain. I have suffered from it since I was a teenager, so I anticipate a hard time. I feel you pain, dear. Your hubby is adorable--but take him up on that butt rubbing!

I'm sorry you are going through that Melissa. Definitely visit a chiropractor. I had it bad with my last pregnancy and it is usually because your hips are out of alignment. Hope this helps :)
