Totally normal! It's sciatic nerve pain. Go to the drugstore and buy a donut. You can get a blowup one or a cushy one. I opted for a cushy one, even if it cost me $20. Totally worth it!

(Off-topic.... I got pregnancy-related carpal tunnel too. You can get splints to help this. Just in case this happens to you later in pregnancy!)

I am having baby #2 and have the same issue. I had minor problem prior to preg. If it seems to get worse I would ask your doctor, or make mention of it at your next visit. For me it is my muscles/lig/tendons streatching

I'm wondering if you might be describing sciatica (spelling?) pain.

I'm about 8 wks along with baby #2 and i've just started to get the first twinges of it. For me it manifests as pain that starts in the low back or buttock and feels like shooting or electricity. It's a type of nerve pain and is quite common in pregnancy. I had the same type of trouble with baby #1 and it faded away within a few weeks of delivery.
