    I seriously am having a hard time even taking my dog to go pee.

    I have to wait and see if my insurance will pay for a chiropractor or pt. If not, I can't afford to pay extra medical bills on my own now. So, I'm hoping there are some things I can do to alleviate it.

    I have battled sciatic nerve problems for years, hence the reason I got hooked on narcotics. It is very common with pregnant women, stretching sometimes helps. Hope it gets better for you.

    Get on the edge or your couch laying on the side that isn't hurting, the side you are laying on, bend your knee slightly. The other leg, drape it over the knee and put pressure towards the floor with this leg, at the same time pull your upper body back to the couch. This will relieve the pressure on the nerve.

    I am crap at explaining things but I will try. My pain was on my right side so if it is your left do the opposite. LOL

    Lay on your back in bed put your left leg on a 45 degree angle cross your right leg over it clasp your hands below the knee and pull your leg in to your chest. Not sure if that is possible cause the belly.

    Try myofacia(SP?) release with a foam roller, that helps me out often. It helps temporarily, but at least it helps. My girl got that during pregnancy and still gets if every so often since, she uses this for about 10 min and she has relief for at least the day or more. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
