Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

sciatic nerve pain

1 answers
I'm 34 weeks along and for the past two days I've been in some pain. My sciatic nerve is killing me!!! I always try to elevate my feet and take walk breaks during working hrs. Is this a common thing among pregnant women at this stage of my pregnancy? It's my 1st pregnancy so I'm not sure. Also, what can I do to ease the pain? Last night while showering, I let warm water hit the area then I had my husband massage the area (too painful) Please help!

Have you talked to a chiropractor? I was treated during and after my last pregnancy and it helped a ton. Sciatica can be caused by a misalignment in your spine so it is probably worth at least a phone call. Most insurance plans cover chiropractic care.Good luck :)
