Went for my almost 33w appt. Measuring 37w. I was complaining about the new weird "stomach" pains that I've been getting. They are wrapping around to my back and making walking painful. He said it's a form of sciatic..He offered PT but said it won't really help much..So we listened to LO and she was in the low 130s so off to NST I went. On my way, I ate a donut hole. By the time they hooked me up, she was 160s and moving like crazy.. They insisted on leaving me for an hour. Of course this turned into 3 once they saw I was contracting. I had to wait for the OB (oncall) to come and check me. No dilated much so they sent me home. My OB called me back and said he doesn't think I'll make Thanksgiving..I told him want to bet. I expect 4 weeks of contractions with this one. Though he said he believes she is in position now so we'll see...

What an eventful appt! I hope she stays put at least until 36 weeks
When I was pg with Addy, I had terrible sciatic pain just like you described, it would stop me in my tracks, DH always thought I was contracting and would perk up and say, is it time...lol! But, it was terrible, my doc said the same thing, I can offer you PT but it probably won't do much, sometimes, if I got on all 4's and rocked a bit, I could get her to move away, but most of the time nothing helped, I just had to wait for her to move on her own. I hope yours eases up!
