In the last few nights, I have started having some serious hip pain while I am sleeping.

Hi,

I had it bad with my first pregnancy, and its kicking up again at 19 weeks. There are three bones in your pelvis and the normally rigid joints loosen with pregnancy. A body pillow helps some, or even just a pillow between the knees. Wearing medium heels during the day rather than flats helped me some, but honestly, it got pretty bad and I felt like I was creaking all the time. I do notice that if I am sedentary during the day that it is worse at night, its better if I take an easy walk, even if that is counterintuitive.

Good luck!

There are two really bothersome things I remember from my first pregnancy.
