Anyone have this right now or suffer from it before? I have never had it before but I started getting it last week. It sucks! I am on my feet my whole shift at work and dont know how much longer I can do it, it hurts so much.

I get it about 6 months into the pregnancy. Right now I have RLS, fuzzy legs at night while sleeping or laying or sitting on couch.

I have had sciatica before I became pregnant... I am not looking forward to the pain I will be getting as I become further along. Right now, my wrists are killing me, and the left side of my hip clicks and pops when I walk :/

I have always had problems with this, but prior to becoming pregnant it would only come up maybe a few times a year. Since I've been pregnant, it's like every week with the pain running down my butt cheek all the way down the back of my thigh!!! Normally with pain this bad, I would take a muscle relaxer and pain killer, but all I can do now is lay down until it goes away...I'm planning on talking to my doctor about this on my next visit, perhaps asking for a PT referral. There are some stretching exercises that used to help - they can be found on youtube and need to be done consistently to make any difference.

If this is the type of pain you're dealing with, I feel badly for you! Hope you get some relief soon.

I get it about 7 months pregnant. It sucks.

This time I plan on going to the chiropractor for adjustments and massage starting the 2nd trimester (soon) to try to avoid that happening, cause by month 9, I am waddling and limping and it is not fun.

I already have it due to sitting too much I think hahaha.
Sitting and a snowboarding mishap (like a 100 of them in one day )
But one thing I found is that if it's on my left side (which mine is) then I need to sleep on my right side a few times and it does help a little. Don't think it will help later down the road, but for right now it helps!

The only thing I found that works is counter pressure my tool of choice is my DHs elbow. I have him lean on one particular spot on my butt it hurts but when he lets up there is relief! Good luck finding something to help.

I'm having definite problems over here. I am forever walking around massaging my butt cheek. Sometimes my leg even gives out when I'm walking. Awful stuff.

I had issues with Sciatica before I got pregnant but it has definitely gotten worse. I am constantly walking around with a pain in my buttcheek. My legs even goes numb when I'm walking....super scary! It just gives out. So weird...and it hurts like hell!

I have it pre-pregnancy but apparently my body thinks as soon as I get pregnant it needs to hit full force. The pain will stop me dead in my tracks most of the time, it's awful. It goes from my butt cheek down to my toes...not fun.
