Also looking for answers on this, I was told to get a box to keep my feet elevated, if that helps any..

Try taking a small pillow to sit on so your butt doesn't get as sore, and if you can try to get up and stretch every 30 minutes. and I feel your pain with the sciatic nerve pain. :cry:

try to walk around every 30-60 min... Even if its just a quick loop around the office. I'm an office manager for a company but our receptionist is out of town and I have to cover him while hes gone. I've been sitting at a desk all day for the last couple weeks and my body hurts so bad. I've trying to do at home yoga-that helps too.

I think I'm going to bring in a pillow. Its hard for me to get up and walk around though. I'm the receptionist, so I'm kind of chained to my desk, I don't even get a lunch break I have to eat my lunch at my desk! I am going to talk to my boss about letting me walk around the building, she seems like she cares about me being pregnant, well a little more worried about my maternity leave and who will do my job and if I will come back to work.

im a receptionist also but i get up every so often to check the fax machine even if i know theres nothing in there. If my body really starts to hurt from sitting i stand near my desk. I also placed a pillow (like one of those small square ones that come with a couch) behind my back so that im sitting up a bit starighter. I also place my feet on my computer modem alot cuz its under my desk and kind of sit indian style like that.
Also I carry tylenol with me when i feel that its really getting bad. I think it helps a tiny bit but its the only thing i can do.
GOOD LUCK!!! i havent been able to find anything thats helped too much. . . my doctor said thats apart of pregnanct just take tylenol and use a heating pad and my mom said it comes with the territory.
UGH!!
