Default Does anyone else have this annoying hip problem? - 12-29-2008, 01:17 AM

Im 28 weeks pregnant and have normal pregnancy pains i guess you would call them, except for one as far as i know. At night i will wake up like 5 times either because my bladder is full or because the hip that I am sleeping on is really really sore. I usually just flip over to the other side but in a couple of hours i wake up again only to find that my other hip is aching too. The pain is more along the lines of in the socket where my leg bone meets my hip bone, rather then my whole hip. Any way i try sleeping still hurts, even if its with more/less pillows, or even on a different surface like my couch. I cant figure out whats wrong or how i can get it to stop! (Its not like im over weight either i've gained exactly how much i should) Any suggestions anyone?

I have had this problem too. Have you tried sleeping with a big pillow between your legs / knees? That kept my legs further apart while I was sleeping and helped relieve the pressure on my hip socket.

all i can say is I was the same and the only way I could sleep was to lie on my back and even then I had to prop myself up with pillows because I was getting so much heartburn I was practically sitting up then. when the babies head drops it might get a bit easier it might be the way its lying in the womb that's causing it. anyway I wish you all the best of luck in your pregnancy and it will be worth it when you see that baby's face god bless

yes i have that problem too. it is from your hips spreading apart because your body is starting to prepare for the birth of your child. so the pain that you are feeling is very normal. i just place a pillow in between my legs and it helps out alot. good luck and congrats.

Yeah, I am 18 weeks pregnant and only started getting this problem when pregnant. I went to the chiropractor today because that dull cramping became very very painful and my hubby decided he wanted me to be able to walk. I've not gained any weight (in fact have lost a bit). It really helps. I can at least sleep. Even though you are not overweight you could be a little out of alignment. It will alleviate those pains. Though the doctor should okay it, it doesn't hurt to contact your doctor. Some of the pain is usual because your pelvis is spreading and making way for baby. If pillows don't work in between your legs or anything doesn't help you might consider this.18 weeks pregnant.

I had the same problem with all of my pregnancies. Get a body pillow and sleep with it tucked between your legs and kind of along your belly with your arms wrapped around the top of it. Then you can lean forward onto it a bit without leaning on your tummy. You could also try putting a pillow behind your back and leaning back on it so that you're not really lying on your back. The trick is figuring out how to take the pillows with you when you roll over! I also got an egg crate mattress pad which helped a lot. You could try that or a memory foam one. The good news is that the aches and pains will go away after you have the baby, so hang in there!

baby is being moved everytime or flip and he/she is weighing down on your sore hip area. I'm 39 weeks and i passed out once because the baby sat on a nerve to long. strange things are due to happen i guess.
