Has anyone here had Pelvic Girdle Pain during pregnancy? I am 31 weeks pregnant today ( yay!) with my first, and I think that is what I am dealing with. I started getting a shooting pain that starts in the area of my lower back and continues down through my right leg. At its worst I feel like my leg will give out on me.
I plan to bring it up with my midwife at my upcoming appointment, but in the mean time I am looking for suggestions on dealing with this!
To make matters worse, DH and I just moved into a new house this weekend and all I want to do is to put things away, organize, decorate, and set up the nursery!

Like sciatic pain? I had that when pregnant and a heating pad sometimes helped. Also resting and staying off my feet and a giant pregnancy pillow. Good luck!

Sounds like sciatic pain! I have it terrible but seeing my chiropractor regularly helps.

From what I have read, it is very similar to sciatic pain. I'm sitting up in bed right now with a heating pad and I still have a lot of pain off and on.
