Final trimester pains

Hi mommies, im in my final trimester. Im not having much of the lower back pain but sometimes my buttocks would hurt when i sit down. I had to lie down most of the time when it hurts. Its not ideal to bedrest because im a sahm and my other kids needs me. Anyone had this problem? How do you get relief?
