Severe backache (1 sided) 16 weeks

Hi, I started having left sided backpain on my hips or buttock area and when I walk I can feel the sharp pain all the way down my left leg. Been having this for almost a week. Every step I walk makes me cringe in pain 😭

it's the same for me, left side buttocks. super random sharp pain when walking and have to stop immediately. i asked docs, cannot xray so only solution is physio if you want but i didnt opt to go for it yet still monitoring as it's on and off

Same! Lie on the other side, i bought maternity pillow, hydrate yourself & do simple preggo safe stretches (find on Youtube)

it’s normal. uterus is pressing on the nerve. once the weight grows again the pressure will move away from the nerve

try stool softerner
