So this is my first pregnancy and I am 13 weeks along this Monday. I had this pain when i would lie down and then get back up again, it was a sharp uncomfortable pain at first. This past Tuesday at work we had a team building where we had to walk for 31 mins (should have been longer but there was running and fast walking to finish it) Since that day the pain has gotten worse to the point i squeal in pain sometimes when i walk or get off the couch. It feels as tho someone is stabbing my buttock w a knife and just yesterday it started to somewhat travel down my leg.
I guess my question would be am I crazy and should I make a visit to the er? I have an appointment on the 10th for our first ultrasound and the 20th with our baby doctor. My oh thinks I need to get it checked out asap while I think there isn't much er can do about it. Its just starting to get more and more uncomfortable.
Thanks everyone eases my mind a lot. Not going to over react just going to wait til the 20th for the baby docs appointment and let her know. Just hope it stops soon it is a literal pain in the butt haha.
Hi. Sciatica isn't a diagnosis just a term for leg pain. There can be different causes. From what you say i'd guess you had a piriformis spasm. Have a warm bath and do some gentle stretches. Hug knees to chest, hug knee to opposite shoulder and do a piriformis, glut stretch. If you google piriformis stretch you will find a pic. Basically lie on your back with your knees bent. Put one ankle on the opposite knee, dropping the knee down. A but like a finger of 4. Then thead your arm though and grasp the thigh of the bent knee and gently bring the legs towards you.
It's nothing to be concerned about. I would start pregnancy yoga though.
