sciatic nerve pain...need relief!

Any tips on how to relieve this pain for the last trimester? Guessing not much can be done, but wait until baby is born! I'll try to lay on my side and massage my butt/leg with a tennis ball...any other pain relief tips?

Can you see a chiropractor? That provides some temporary relief. Last pregnancy I went twice a week for a few weeks at the very end, mostly hoping it would help me avoid induction but it also helped with pain.

I went to a massage therapist, which worked for a decent amount of time. Once she dropped, the pain went away. Then I had all sorts of new kinds of pains!

I see a chiropractor weekly and will be getting a massage today! Not much relief, but at least my pelvis gets back into alignment and will hopefully help keep baby in optimal position!

Re: sciatic nerve pain...need relief!

I had horrible sciatic pain for the second and third trimesters. I broke down in tears at my OBGYN because I could hardly walk across the hall, and she finally gave me a referral to physical therapy. The exercises and the icing they helped a lot, but I did have to go two to three times a week. I'm sorry you have to go through this! It really will be over soon, and you'll feel so much better. I swear!
