Re: Back pain?

It sounds like sciatica. It's pretty bad that you are getting it all the way in your foot. Mine mostly goes from my hip/butt to my knee.

I second a chiropractor, I'd recommend finding one that does gentle adjustments and is certified in the Webster technique.

My sciatica is from a fractured vertebrae that healed out of alignment; chiropractic adjustments do make me feel better but I was once worked on by a chiropractor that twisted and cracked (he misdiagnosed my fracture as scoliosis... rookie. ) and that was very painful and scary and did quite a bit of damage to my already messed up spine. So just in case you actually have something more than a pregnancy ache and pain I would recommend a chiropractor that was gentle...
