I have this pain in my left side buttox. It is a deep pain that hurts when I bend or stand. It shoots down into my leg. Anyone know what it might be?

It's your sciatic nerve. Very common for it to become inflamed during pregnancy. Taking walks might help, you could also try a heating pad or maybe an ice pack.

Thank you Miranda. I thought it might be that, but wasn't sure. The week by week book said that is what it is, but I just wanted a 2nd opinion.

That is definitely what it sounds like. I have had sciatic pain with all 3 pregnancies. Worse with first and this one. I have a chair ma__sager/heating pad. It works wonders. It ma__sages your lower back and your thighs as well as applies light heat. A great investment. Also, if my husband applies direct pressure to the center of my spine/tailbone area and ma__sages out towards the pain, the baby shifts off of the spot and relieves some of the pressure. Good luck!

I had that at the start of my second trimester and it went away after a couple weeks. Now at 30 weeks mine hurts when I vacuum. Ha ha! Good excuse not to vacuum. Or if I'm doing a lot of bending over and stuff like that it starts to hurt.

Thank you Kristen! I didn't feel it with my son, but this pregnancy has seemed to really do a number on me. Between this and hemroids, I am about to go nuts! Thanks

Heidi that is what happens to me! I couldn't even get out of my bad yesturday afternoon when my husband and I were watching TV. LOL! He had to roll me out of the bed and I caught myself before I fell. It hurts soooo bad! I could cry, scream, ugghhhhh!

definately sounds like the sciatic nerve! The pains usually strats in my back and shhots down into my left b___tock...ouch! Seeing the chiropractor regularly has helped!
