I have discovered a new level of pregnancy discomfort. I think I have sciatica. This evening, I started feeling this shooting pain down my rear end (fun, huh?). Then I realized that it shoots through my left hip pretty much any time I use my left leg. It's a jarring, sudden sharp pain that usually results in an audible expression of discomfort.
I'm hoping that this is something that will go away as quickly as it came. I did my 2-mile walk today (the doc said only to walk 2 miles a day??) just fine with no discomfort. Then around 6 pm tonight, it started hurting. Now, I feel like I'm walking around like an elderly woman. Surely this cannot last another 3 or 4 months, right??
Regardless, these babies are still worth it. At least I'm relatively comfortable sitting & lying down.
