I had it early in the second trimester, and luckily it only lasted about a week or two. In my case it was the baby pressing against my sciatic nerve, and as soon as he moved it went away. I'm sure many different things can cause it though.
This exactly. I'm in agony. However, it's a sign that things are moving along and so I'll take it! As long as its not a sign of something worse.
