It is most likely your sciatic nerve. This is a VERY common problem during pregnancy.

You’re not alone!  I had terrible sciatica from 5-8 months. It’s so much better now that the baby has gone head down!  I also get muscle aches in my butt shooting down the backs of my thighs.  The muscles will literally be cramping and aching and I will be talking to someone and just trying not to act like a total weirdo!

Mine isnt my sciatic nerve.. It is my piriformis.. Which is a muscle.. The piriformis muscle is a deep muscle located beneath the gluteal (butt) muscles.

@PrncssDva – nope.  sciatica and muscle pain are totally different.  If you have sciatica you will know it instantly!  Here’s hoping you don’t get it!

@PrncssDva- ya its no fun. I didnt get it until about 39 weeks. Just came out of the blue one day.. then was gone 3 days later. 

I hope it gets better for you! It had me in tears one evening!

That is terrible! You poor thing – i hope you find some relief! Have you tried sitting on one of those donut pillows? Could that help?

@PrncssDva:  OMG I thought I was the only one as you said….I thought it was a weird symptom… I am also 5.5 months (22 weeks) and sometimes when I get up it hurt sooooooo bad. It doesn’t matter if I sit on a pillow, a blanket, etc….. grrrrrr. I will definitely be keeping up with this thread and hope that we can get some relief!!!
