    Default Lower back pain in first trimester

    Hi all,

    I'm after a bit of advice. Over the last couple of days I have noticed by lower back and butt on the left were a little sensitive. Tonight, it's so sore it's uncomfortable to walk.
    Can anyone shed some light on this? Is it normal for the first trimester and is there anything I can do or medication I can take to make me meek a bit better?
    Thanks ladies

    I had a similar pain when pregnant and was in pain to walk. Was put down to be sciatica pain and unfortunately lasted the whole 9 months. Hope for your sake it's not that!

    I have been experiencing the same pain. Did a google search and it seems pretty normal as hormones, ligaments etc are all changing. Lets hope it does not last long.

    Lets hope so ladies. I have been doing some stretching exercises that I found on you tube, I guess we will have to suck it up until 12 weeks. I might get my Chiro to do some gentle manipulation after that.
    Does anyone else have any info to share?

    Is is a sharp stabbing pain? If so, it's probably sciatica (although my Dr told me it was normal - no it wasn't!). I started seeing a chiropractor trained in treating pregnant women & it was gone within 3 sessions. Definitely seek help, no reason to put up with it if you don't have to.

    I've been getting sciatica pain when I do too much and I'm only 10 weeks. It sucks!

    I had the same thing and it turned out it was just tight glute muscles causing my back to seize up a bit. Hubby did some active release therapy (ie strong pressure point massage) on my glutes and the pain went away. I have had tight hams and glutes in the past from sport and the pregnancy seemed to cause it to flare up again.

    I'm thinking its not sciatica because its not
    Referring down my leg, and its not
    Stabbing. In saying that, I think I might be similar to last poster as
    I too have
    A history of sport and tight hammies. It does feel different to lactic acid though, it's definitely nerve related

    I've had that too. Pain on and off in my hips, back and butt cheeks. My yoga teacher said to try standing against the wall with a tennis ball on your bum cheek where it hurts and roll it up and down across the pain. I haven't tried it yet but I will, as soon as I get a tennis ball!
    Hope it improves for you.
