Sounds like sciatica, (shooting pain down leg stemming from lower back) possibly pinched one of your sciatic nerves when you knelt down. Is it constant or only after you kneel down? Best thing is to keep mobile.

I would see your doctor, and hopefully they can refer you to physio. As strong pain relief is out due to pg. but an icepack to your lower back (on the bum area on the side that the pain is) should help the pain.
