The book I grabbed "Your Pregnancy Week-by-Week" by Glade B. Curtis had this to say about:

Many women experience an occasional excruciating pain in their buttocks and down the back or side of their legs as pregnancy progresses. This is called sciatic-nerve pain because the sciatic nerve runs behind the uterus in the pelvis to the legs. Pain is believed to be caused by pressure on the nerve from the growing and expanding uterus.

The best treatment for the pain is to lie on your opposite side. This helps relieve the pressure on the nerve.

I am currently 8 months pregnant and in my 4th month I began gettin sciatic nerve pressure in my pelvic area and running from my back down my legs. The best ways to help with the pain are when lying on your side ALWAYS have a pillow between your legs and it helps to have on behind you supporting your back. Also, when getting dressed, sit down to put on your underwear and pants. Tis is because standing on one leg or lifting one leg can cause the sciatic pain. !

While it is normal for a man's testicles to retract, for example when swimming or if a blow is aimed in that direction, I don't believe it is common that they should need to be 'pushed back down', usually they drop back on their own. I suggest you see a physician.
