Lower back pain 9 months pregnant

Category: Back Pain

I am almost 9 months pregnant. I'm having pain in my lower lefthand side of my back?

Next week i will be 9 months pregnant. Yesterday I started having pain in my lower lefthand side of my back/buttocks. its getting to the point where I cant walk without it hurting. I cant move certain directions and it hurts... I have no other signs of anything, and am trying to figure out of this is a real problem or can it wait until the dr appt. tomorrow? I was told the baby is possibly putting pressure on my sciatic nerve?? Could this be so and is there any thing I can do about this??? Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated.

It sounds like you are having problems with your Sciatic Nerve, aka Sciatica. Just get an appointment with your doctor as soon as you can and let them know what's going on.
You can try finding a comfortable position and propping yourself with pillows so that you can stay in that position. Also try using a heating pad, that might help.
I had problems with Sciatica during my entire pregnancy and was especially painful at night. I did all the above and my OB told me that was all that could be done for me.
Ask your OB though. They probably have something more helpful for you.

Extreme Lower Back Pains, 7 1/2 Months Pregnant. What Is It?

I work in an office from 9 to 3 and babysit three children [4,6 and 7] from 4 to 6 or 7.
When I lay down in my bed for ten minutes or more, any form of moving causes me the worst pain.
I could lift my head and I get an extreme shot of pain on my lower left side of my back.
It hurts so bad I feel like I'm going to throw up.
Turning, rolling, even scooting or putting my left leg up or down kills me.
Getting up will take me at least 3 to 5 minutes.
After that the pain stays with me for the rest of the night, anytime I turn or move when walking anything, sends a shooting pain right to my lower left side of my back, and sometimes makes my leg buckle.
What is it?
I have a doctor's appointment next week, but it's been going on for two months, just tolerable, but this past week or two has just gotten worse.
I don't even want to lay down because I know how bad it will hurt to move, take a drink of water or get up to pee.
What do you think it is, and what should I do?

Probably your Siactic Nerve. If your baby is laying on it, it causes a shooting pain from your lower back down your leg.

Is it normal to experience sever lower back and hip pain on the right side in early pregnancy?

I am only eight weeks pregnant. This weekend after getting up I noticed some back pain which intensified as the day went by. By a few hours it was so sever I could bearly get up or walk right. I noticed if i stepped or moved my right foot i would get a sever sharp pain that has even made me cry. I now walk like im 9 months pregnant. Straightening out my back is severly painful. Please help!!!

Some might think it's your uterus stretching, but that sounds a lot like my sciatic pain. I started getting that really early too. Unfortunately my doctor joked that the only cure is "Birth!". It really is painful sometimes. I hate it. It goes away a little but never all the way. What I do, is get a warm press to put on my leg/hip, lower back. Sometimes, I just have to lie on my left side, or put my weight on my left side. Feel better!!

25 weeks pregnant and having low back pain and stomach cramping after sex?

i had an ultra sound at 20 weeks they said the baby was 1lb 9 0z and doing great, i had sex with my bf and after i had bad low back pain and pain in my low abdomin is this normal? i only worry cause i misscarried 1 month before i got pregnant with this kid and i was 5 weeks at the time.

It's up to you to determine if there's a problem. Cramping after sex during pregnancy is normal, but considering your past you should pay attention to your body. If the cramping stops you are probably okay. Go to the doctor/hospital if you're concerned.
