    I'd tried an Osteopath that deals with pregnant women.

    I have had it on and off for years and the research I have done suggests that there is not a lot you can do for it other than take pain killers. Walking tends to improve it a little so try not to sit down too much as sciatica is usually at its worst when sitting.

    i remember that pain! I couldn't move and there is not much you can take in terms of pain killers when pregnant. I had a few chiro appointments and now I don't have issues with it. I would highly recommend seeing someone who works with pregnant women.
