I am 40 yo & I am suffering this pregnancy. Not sure if it is because of my already bad back, but from the day I found out I was pregnant I have had the worst case of Sciatica & Piriformis syndrome in my entire life. I try to stretch, yoga, pool exercises & even ice, but I have the most problem at night when it comes to sleeping. I cannot lay on my stomach & every 2hours I wake up to pee, but I have so much pain that I it takes 30min to get back to sleep. My lil one seems to be fine but I'm constantly in pain. I am trying to get a acupuncturist to help and I am wary of a chiropractor right now. Anyone else having problems like this & what did you do to obtain relief. Or does anyone have any recommended treatments? Oh, it does not help that I am waiting on a new bed either. Help!!

Hello! I'm 39 and just found out I was pregnant with my 5th child. Before I even got a positive I started to have sciatic pain in my right buttock and groin. This pregnancy i have already had much more aches and pains. Ive been having lots of cramping which is making me nervous because I have had one miscarriage before. I did also have right much cramping with my fourth pregnancy. Have you also had alot of cramping?
