She believes that the pain is my sciatic nerve, which could be the baby pinching it or pressing on it some how. It leaves me in a lot of pain and discomfort through out the day, but I have to work, therefore the remedies she gave me were:
o1. Do not lift more then 20 pounds. I was first told 30lbs about 1.5 months ago, so she lowered it some.
o2. Take Tylenol. Like I mentioned before, I am not one to take medicine while I am pregnant, so this really isn't an option for me.
o3. use a heating pad. It can be on medium for 20-30 minutes, or put it on low for 40 minutes. Sometimes this can provide relief. In my case, I used it last night and in all honesty it didn't help.
o4. take a warm bath, no bubbles or smelly stuff.
o5. rest and relax
so basically, there isn't any kind of real pain relief they can do. They did also recommend the pregnancy belt, but I only have 4 weeks left, I don't know if it'll be worth it or not. I did ask her to induce me, but she said no.
Good luck to any of you that are having these pains as well. I am just taking it day by day, trying to sit and relax as much as I can.
